Translation

  • review the Overall Completion column at the PC-BSD® localization site[2] to see if your language is fully translated; if not, help to translate the outstanding pages and review the translations that are pending review
  • assist in translation of other PC-BSD® websites

Software

Code

  • create hardware probe script that sends info about unsupported hardware to a centralized database
  • create device auto-probe tool which checks for any driver-less PCI devices and tries to locate and load correct module for that particular ID; may require knowledge of C

Quality Assurance

  • install and use one of the desktop environments supported in 10.1 and report any bugs to the appropriate testing forum[5]

Outreach

  • create brochures suitable for handing out at events
  • organize a PC-BSD® event at your school
  • create and deliver a PC-BSD® presentation at a conference

Research

  • review current website statistics mechanism to see how it can be improved to gather statistics such as what information is important to users and download trends (e.g. which mirrors receive most traffic, number of DVD downloads vs boot-only downloads, geographic stats, etc.)
  • datamine forums to see which questions remain unanswered in the Handbook or FAQs

Training

  • create videos demonstrating how to perform common tasks on PC-BSD®

User Interface

  • review PC-BSD® specific menus and give feedback on how to improve their help texts, layout, and flow
