      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

      Lot's of opportunity in this project, quite a large list of errors.

      It looks like this project is in need of someone to approach the current developer/s and give them some encouragement & help with fixing issues.
