This page is here to provide a platform to collaboratively define priority tasks that can be assigned to the 6 months of developer time being donated by kCube Consulting. Please use the space below to contribute your suggestions of what you think the donated developer time should be used for. Keep the ideas broad at this stage - we will conduct a poll for which are the most useful contributions and at that stage we will you will then be asked to provide more detail if your idea is popular. For more background please see this blog article.
Please read through the list below first and only add your idea if it is not already mentioned.
For the sake of sanity, you should only list sizable requirements here - small issues should be raised in the bug tracker rather.
Bear in mind that there are six months, not six years allocated, so try to be reasonable in your suggestions!
