This project is part of the GNU Project.

In the 20 years since the GNU Project's inception we've written and released an impressive body of work. We're not done yet, and we've got some ideas for Free Software programs that still need to be written.

This Savannah project allows us to add these items (that typically don't have their own projects yet) to the Savannah help wanted database where the 25,000+ savannah users (and the public at large) can browse them. This includes items from the old 'GNU Task List' and new ideas that people have submitted. If you are interested in working on one of the tasks posted please contact the Volunteer Coordinators at

Details (job description, contact ...):

2013-01-18 - thse seem to be available

These items are things that we'd like to have but aren't enough of a priority to need their own tasklist items:

* A manual for Ghostscript.

* A manual for TCSH.

* A coherent free reference manual for Perl. Most of the Perl on-line reference documentation can be used as a starting point, but work is needed to weld them together into a coherent manual.

* A good free Perl language tutorial introduction. The existing Perl introductions are published with restrictions on copying and modification, so that they cannot be part of a GNU system. bkuhn made a start at a free tutorial, but a lot of work is needed.

* A manual for PIC (the graphics formatting language).

* A manual for programming applications for X11.

Required Skills:

Skill Level Experience
Texinfo Good Knowledge 6 Mo - 2 yr
GNU Coding Standards Good Knowledge 6 Mo - 2 yr
