I think that should be one of the main goals of the openSUSE Conference.
To turn those veteran users into contributors, removing single points of
failure in the process.

There are quite some things within the project that would benefit from
more hands, and sure there are some hands looking for something to do.
We should have a series of talks/workshops/BoFs about that.

In my side, I plan to have session "openSUSE needs you:" (tentative title) to fix the issue that the
mentioned page highly depends on coolo and myself looking for some spare
minutes now and then, with no time to do deep changes/fixes.

What sort of help are you after with software.o.o ?

Sorry for the late reply. I have been busy.

I'm trying to summarize and shape everything into a talk. But, here are
some links grouped by topic, in no particular order:

1) Content (wording, info available, organization, etc.) (related to previous)

2) Searching and communication with OBS (most of them are caused by
wrong assumptions from software.o.o on how the distro and/or ports are
handled in OBS)

3) Others

As you can see, the whole thing needs some love. Even the automated
tests are broken right now.

My challenge is to come up with a understandable full picture and kind
of a plan so I can scream for help in more concrete ways (although the
call from help in the first link was already focused enough... and
didn't resulted in any help).
