There are a handful of small UI enhancement tickets that are low priority for the hardcore devs, but that I’d still like to see make it into 3.0. If you mess around with PHP, consider writing a patch for one of these tickets. Contributing to core gives you awesome bragging rights, and if you do WordPress consulting, it generally gives you the cred to charge more. :)
Here are three tickets that would be awesome for someone to bang out:
- Enable comment threading by default
- Change pagination style on listing screens like edit.php (Hulu-style)
- Show status when changing admin email
I’ll try to post a couple of pet tickets each day throughout the sprint week that is coming up. If you want to take a stab at one but aren’t sure how to deal with the core patch process, check out the links under “How to Submit Patches” on the WordPress Trac home page.
