Joined the project right after the initial announcement. His main interest is in promoting Inkscape and linking the project with larger goals through the cleaning up usability, bugs and the implementation of new ideas (mainly the extension system). He is taking a lead on the new clipart project with Ted, Bryce and some sodipodi developers. Tasks: planner, writer, administrative, website, help/tutorials, code cleanup, tester, some work on the codebase.

Clear out All Uses of XPMs
I'm trying to clear out all uses of XPMs and replacing them with SVGs.
Article (for 0.38)
I'm thinking that this could be in the form of questions asked of our community and developed answers on the wiki.
See Vector Aesthetics
Need to develop this section more.
From an email from BULIA: >If this functionality is in fact "Preview in Browser" then it is certainly>confusing which makes it useless in its current state but I think with>minor changes it could be made genuinely useful.Good idea to make this command an "External preview". Just store a command line with options in prefs, and when a preview is requested, save the current file and run the command on it.This seems to be similar to the task of running an external browser for help files - therefore, Jon, what would you say if I ask you to add this to your TODO?Right now, however, the "preview" is done by Inkscape itself, and is therefore useless. So I'm removing this command for now, until we have an external preview functionality.
Help System Overview
Bulia has intermediately developed the keyboard shorcuts SVG in the Help Menu. NJH and BULIA created a tutorial there as well. Eventually, we will need to integrate YELP/SCROLLKEEPER into the whole scheme.
Eyedropper Tool Enhancement
Add button to copy hex to clipboard in the secondary toolbar
Already Inkscape can open URLs from commandline, one should be able to do this in the app.
Develop BIG PICTURE Section more
This includes talking with MRDOCS about the OPTO group and developing relationships with other projects. Also, the openswatch project should be pushed further still. I should really look more into SCRIBUS' development community and the docs that MRDOCS has written.
Tutorials and Practical Uses
