Anything. SliTaz is a Tiny Autonomous Zone, i.e., freedom to
work/change anything without too much control.

Yes, Motivation is the key. Please feel free to contribute anything.

Here is small list of things we always need help with
* Adding new packages to repos (you can start with committing to wok-undigest)
* Adding new community flavors
* Bug fixing to existing packages
* Keeping existing pkgs simple, lightweight and incredibly tiny
(decrease dependencies if they are optional)
* Improve or add new SliTaz tool boxes
* Website and Documentation Guides
* Most Important: New ideas; Slitaz is an innovative distro. Any idea,
however small, is always welcome.

Hope this helps. For more details, wait for sometime. A Roadmap may be
