Hello, i am working with the a group in OLPC helping to maintain the
activities we included in the XO machines.
The Write activity is based in the python bindings of abiword and is
very important for us. (And we have 1.850.000 children using it!)
I must keep this mail short (like uwog tell me), but the main
developers are very busy and I am looking for help, anybody

I have compiled the pending tickets in and and classified them,
the list is here

There are many tickets i think can be closed, can anybody confirm it?

1) Tickets about abiword don't handling image formats:
#1442 non-PNG image support for Abiword (
#2339 Pasted image becomes huge in Write (
#4923 Image dropped from Etoys to Write becomes huge

2) Tickets what could be related to old interface
#1043 "Right-to-left dominant" doesn't work (
#1798 Help buttons in Write activity are broken
#3913 Format popup should have dividers (
#1799 Closing the Tabs window in Write switches to Home view

3) Tickets IMHO can be closed

scrolling (
