Wanted to contribute to GnuCash but don't know how ? Here's your chance :)
The gnome platform is changing its software centre to work more like an appstore than a tool to
install packages. So each application that wants to be visible in the new software centre needs
some nice screen shots to show and a nice summary of what the application does.
That's the very short explanation. More details about this can be found here 
I have created a basic appdata file as required for the software centre, but there are two
problems with it:
1. I'm not a good writer, so the summary is not good enough (too short).
2. I have referenced some screen shots from our website, but those are not accepted due to a
wrong aspect ratio (the software centre wants images in the 16:9 ratio)
So what can you do ?
1. look at the description that is currently in our appdata file  and make it better. The
guidelines for a proper description can be found at .
2. Make some nice screen shots of GnuCash in action and make them available somewhere for
us to view. The best 3 will be used for the software centre. If there are many more submissions,
a selection of the nicest screen shots will be used for a gallery on the GnuCash website.
Timing: please submit your work before December 10, so we can make the selection for the RC
You will be doing many users a favour with this relatively easy opportunity to contribute and
you will have my sincerest gratitude :)
