Yes, I agree. I guess I could look up bugs related to my listed
interests. The reason for this mail, though, was the lack of gnome-love
bugs / entry points. That's why I asked for pointers to get started,
bugs that were "easy" to fix for someone without prior knowledge of the
code base.

I looked at this, and it is very handy. However, the «get started with
your first patch/bug/etc.» is lacking, unfortunately. Perhaps I could
add something to the wiki, if I get as far as a patch? :)

Documentation created with sphinx is very nice! I created some for my
own project. Examples can be written as doctests, and tested with
sphinx-build -b doctest! Handy to ensure that the examples always
work.. :)
