Hi Brynn, thank you for all the info you provided.

The question that remains is: there are a lot of info for developers, which is good, of course.
But not everyone is a developer. We all understand the more developers we have for our project, the better.

But we also need to encourage our user base to grow, specially to convert part of our user base into volunteers. We can always use more hands/brains!
But (sorry for the 3rd but in a row) we need to make sure we have some sort of place to point new users on how to start translating things (we have decent material today, but we could improved things (at least on the Windows aspect/users side of things))

And I am lacking a place where our users could read more about specific things they could help the project (translating inkscape interface, translating tutorials, translating the website, onboarding more people to help with bug triaging, ideas to redesign interface, and so forth...).

What do you think?

Happy new year!

This sounds like it might be a borderline case, where an article on how
to write themes and create icons sets would benefit both developers and
users.  Perhaps such an article should be cross posted - both in the
wiki and in the gallery?  (Although such an article would need to be
written in 2 different ways - one in developer-speak, and the other
which non-tech-savy users could understand....)

As far as the GitLab repo, while I have not heard anything about which
group it's meant to serve, to me, GL is primarily for developers as well.

It seems like I heard a whisper, maybe 3 or even 4 years ago, about
wanting to close the wiki.  I don't remember what was supposed to
replace it, but GL had not been mentioned at that time.  As far as I
understand, GL has a wiki, doesn't it?

Yep, that's alls I know :p

Happy New Year!
