Last year's GSoC had a project enhancing our SVG export with animation support. Here's a blog post about it, and some example files created with that feature.

Work Queues


If you want to work on Impress stuff, here's places to start looking. Compared to Work Areas, this is for jumping straight in, and usually bite-sized stuff. Fixing bugs from the most annoying section will get you happy users; fixing stuff from the EasyHacks sections will get your feet wet with Impress hacking, and/or help offloading core developers to do nastier stuff.
