      Get on the Pitivi IRC channel, get your development environment built, play with that version of Pitivi and see if there are things in particular you would like to fix. Otherwise, talk to us on IRC.

      Spread the word!

      Tell your friends, teach them how to use it, make your own videos and give credit at the end with something like this:

      or this

      • 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.

  • Q: What is a bug or issue with Pitivi that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

      Fading/transparency of overlayed clips causes black video

      https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=644372
      which seems to be caused by this:
      https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=612797

      Which basically makes PitiVi unusable for anything other than cutting clips up and rearranging them. this single bug had been holding back all of my video projects for over a year. I love PiTiVi, and i'm committed to using it, but i can't!

      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.

      • Note:

        If this issue was formally filed on the web, be sure to include the URL.
