That sounds like a great idea.  Tried the link and it didn't seem to have
too many suggestions on how people could help.  If ToriOS does something
like this, hopefully it'll have more ideas on how people can contribute. 
Could definitely list areas like adding gettext style translations for
languages (if the translations aren't already available for a program) and
possibly having people with accessibility issues test and recommend how to
make the system easier to use.  A list of software that might need
patching/feature additions would be nice too.  Also, if anyone's looking
for programs to perform particular tasks, people could help recommend
software that might do the job.

Would really like to see something like this added to the ToriOS site.
