Is there a list of 'jobs that need doing'? On the wiki?

Good idea - I've created a new page for this https://github.com/russellallen/self/wiki/Suggestions-for-Small-Improvements but haven't added any jobs yet!


I'm back studying PT and working FT, but might be able to squeeze out some time for small jobs as a way of learning self.

I'd also love to know if Korzs will be released into the wild?

based on what-ever (little) i know about "self", and my interactions 
with mr. j raskin, i would suggest staying away from a zooming interface 
for a "self"-like project.

a zoomworld, as was described by mr. raskin would be more apt where you 
want to drill down into _knowledge_, which isn't the case with "self".

do correct me if you feel my assumptions are wrong.
