This todo is currently actually an assignment Willian takes care of. So  
we should discuss that with him first... :)

What counts for me mostly is:

- support for the bug tracker, when people post issues with the  
scripts. It requires quite a broad knowledge of what the scripts  
actually do to help them. Typically it works well if first someone can  
verify if it's really a bug (e.g. intended functionality that doesn't  
work) and not a feature request. Once verified, it can be passed on to  
the maintainer of the script.

- provide non-python level documentation for the importers on  
www.blender3d.org releaselog and support level. We currently have a  
page like this;
Which isn't very elaborate. I'd like to see an extensive import/export  
section, at end-user manual level, docs describing the exact current  
functionality, including sample files. It might be well possible most  
of that information is already there!

- make a "regression suite" with samples of files saved by other 3D  
programs, which we can define as mininum for Blender to survive before  
releasing. Preferably with a .blend already having the objects  
imported, to compare. :)

Would that be what's in your mind?
