Can Non-programmers contribute to 5.2?

There are a bunch of ancillary pieces that need to be prepared for 5.2 version. Is there a way that non-programmers can work on those pieces to take load off the developers?

A bunch of reports have marked as interconnected on the MantisBT Enhancement Request & Bug Report database. Most are probably too technical to be adopted by users. But we can probably do stuff like adding Lat/Long values to the Places in the example.gramps tree so that the Geography view modes can demonstrate more features. Or cleaning up the GEDCOM 5.5 sample tree so that it doesn’t have any non-compliant data. (Except for those that are used to demonstrate how non-compliant records from some sources will be handled in an import.)

But that leaves the question of how do we submit changes to the sample files?
