There are many things that we would like to improve in RetroShare, but that we don't, because we simply don't have enough time. That's why we are currently looking for some help.
Knowledge of C++, QT and webskills will certainly be useful, but you don't need to be an expert. Existing RetroShare developers will be able to help you on these projects. Artworks like a logo, buttons, etc are useful too.

RetroShare is working so well and the internal forums and chatrooms are so active, we tend to forget about these external forum's and mailinglist's. Still they are read and you will receive answer.
