Desktop Integration Bounty Hunt

Welcome to Round Two of the first-ever open source desktop bounty hunt!

The goal of this contest is to help improve the level of integration between some of the core components of the Linux desktop.

Our specific aim is to improve the experience of collaboration in the desktop environment. We believe that communicating and working with other people is not simply a function of a single application that sits in a rectangular window on your screen — Evolution or Outlook, for example — but one of the primary functions of a computer. Therefore, collaboration should be a first-class element of the user experience. In other words, it should be really easy for a GNOME user to talk to, share with, and work with their friends.

Below you will find a set of concrete tasks all of which are designed to improve collaboration in the open source desktop. Each task has a bounty associated with it. Your job is simple: choose a task, do the work, fill out the claim form, and collect the bounty.
