To do list

There is a discussion aimed at improving the documentation on the forum.
There is a list of things to do here on the LinuxMCE wiki:Community Portal, along with a list of pages needing attention. If you are not coding, please help complete the documentation. Any one can categorize and organize the pages as necessary. You can join the Wikiworkgroup and help in the documentation effort.

Contributing QA/Testing

We have setup an automated build system that creates a new test release each night, and a bug tracking system. Since programmers never like to test and debug, yet that's what matters most when building a user base, we really need some detail oriented people to stress LinuxMCE and go through all the functions to flush out all the bugs.

Contributing with promotions

We need to get a substantial user base so the companies that make products for the home are motivated to support LinuxMCE and to get momentum behind the development. If you're good at promotion, like making a demo video or flash animation, or posting announcements, or getting some press interest, why not lend a hand?
