The question is not whether we would accept it -- IIRC Google has
explicitly said that they won't accept projects for creating
documentation. That said, you could work on documentation-related
code, such as improving MonoDoc or its integration with MonoDevelop.

That's a really good idea. Have you seen the VS2005 Class Designer
surface? It's absolutely wonderful for designing class hierarchies and
object oriented structures, or visualising or modifying existing ones.
SharpDevelop has recently added something like this too, which you can
look at. IMHO actual UML might be a bit too formal.

MonoDevelop's existing refactoring capabilities should be up to the
task -- the difficult thing is the canvas. It would be nice if it
could share code with a future database designer surface.
