      Advocating the international English version.

      The Finnish version is popular in Finland, but English version in http://www.valo-cd.net/ is not yet as well-known. Any advocacy of the English version would be very useful.

      • 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.

      Native English speakers needed for proof-reading.

      Since the content was created by Finnish-speaking people any native English speakers willing to proof-read the www.valo-cd.net/wiki/ would be highly appreciated.

        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.
