Sprints

Whiteboard

=== Possible projects (pick one if you want to contribute) ===

* Make Lubuntu 100 % translable by fixing all the packages (to make all the strings translable) and using https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Translations/Universe_Translations_in_LP to improve translations quality

* Improve bug reporting by making and improving apport hooks (need one for lxdm, lxsession, lxtask, lxterminal), and try to use them with daily builds (see http://www.piware.de/2012/08/apport-2-5-better-support-for-third-party-and-ppa-packages/)

* Python3 only : Make Lubuntu ISO use python3 only (need a clear evaluation)

* Instrospection : Make Lubuntu ISO use only introspection (gir packages, instead of for examples python-gtk2, python-vte, python-notify)

* Remove gconf : Remove gconf from Lubuntu ISO (need a clear evaluation)

* Make an offline documentation based on the wiki pages (need a clear evaluation)
