Well... I'm not sure that there are, at this moment many tasks that are simple
and self-contained enough for a Quality Team to work on.
Testing is nice, but, well, there are still so many obvious and known bugs
(try drawing at the left or top edges, for instance) that having someone
enumerate them is merely duplication of effort.
The old Krita dialogs are for the greater part really obsolete, and new ones
depend on where we go with design and UI.
As for developer documentation -- that's not a simple task. I've been working
on it, and while I acknowledge that I probably would fit right in with the
rest of quality team as regards prior knowledge of C++ or this application
domain, I've noticed that it's quite hard to fathom Krita's innards. Anyway,
it's not something I'd be inclined to palm off to someone who doesn't intend
to start working on Krita for real.
And the last -- we're sitting pretty with filters, because of ImageMagick.
Adding and EXR filter would be a good idea, but it also demands a thorough
reworking of Krita's design.
So, in the end, I'm not sure that we're having many jobs going at the moment;
when we're nearing V1.0, it's going to be critical to:
test dialogs for shortcuts and consistency
compare docs and app (and write docs...)
test on various pieces of hardware
But having people do that right now would perhaps be slightly premature.
