contributors.debian.org website development
See http://contributors.debian.org/ for the instance currently deployed.
See also http://www.enricozini.org/2013/debian/debian-contributors-right-after-debconf/ for some background.
This website TODO list contains only those items that can clearly be worked on right now, and is used as coordination between the people working on the site.
Generic wishlists, things that require large changes in the site, or things that need a lot of discussion before being implemented, are tracked on the BTS.

The editing form at /sources/update/NAME needs a reasonable layout, and some explanatory text.
Identifier.get_absolute_url with a page listing details about an identifier, like all known contributions.
Document how to create a data source (an example script to do it is in git.debian.org:~enrico/get-webteam-contributors
Autodetect compression type from uploaded file name, if available. This allows to just use curl -F firstname.lastname@example.org without needing -F data_compression=gzip. Look into contributors/importer.py ValidatingDict.get_data: f is a Django ?UploadedFile object with a .name attribute.
Milestone 2: moar data sources
technically all is done server-side
Milestone 3: more identifiers
During maintenance, scan names from GECOS / LDAP and add them to missing first/last names in User.
