there's always stuff do to, of course, but I don't have a list of
currently open bugs. Hopefully there aren't any ;)

If you want to get involved, the Roadmap [0] is probably the best place
to start. The roadmap contains basically three sections:

 * Implemented features
   These features have already been implemented and have been merged
   into the master branch of the Git repository. They should be
   documented in the manpage and have an own wiki page. You can help by
   simply giving the features a try, see if the documentation is
   understandable and complete and if it matches the actual behavior.

 * Planned features
   This section lists features for which somebody has claimed
   responsibility. The site usualy lists the date of the last contact
   which should give you an idea of how vivid development of those
   features is. Work on those features should probably be coordinated
   with whoever said to be working on them. 

 * Wishlist / Ideas
   Lists ideas and nice-to-have features for which nobody has done any
   work yet.

You can also join our IRC channel, #collectd on freenode, where we
discuss bugs, features, and whatever else comes to mind ;)

It's been broken for a while and I didn't get around to fix it yet :/
I hate that web stuff in general and PHP in particular …
