I've been browsing sourceforge quite a bit, looking for existing projects to work on. I have just submitted my first patch, a bugfix for Inkscape. Woohoo! I agree, it probably makes more sense to contribute to something that already exists. I don't have any interest in working on games; I waste enough time playing them as it is

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions though! I'd love to hear more, but I think I may be able to keep myself occupied by improving existing software. It's nice to finally, in some small way, join the ranks of open-source programmers. Feels good to give back something.

Thank you, wapcaplet! (Since I use Inkscape.)

Inkscape and Sodipodi still have a lot of development work ahead of them, so I think it is great that you are joining the team.

I see you use gentoo . I always thought it would be neat to have a graphical stage 1 installer for those who like the geek side of gentoo but don't want to do the hard work it requires to install it. They made a stage 3 installer with VLOS but a stage 1 I know I would use. That would give people an easy installer they could let run overnight and have a system compiled for there system by morning.

As far as I know, work has not yet begun on this project. There are many proprietary scoring systems out there but they all suck and run on Windows only. It would be neat to have one running on a stable and free OS.
