Before describing in more detail what you could do, you should understand and be aware of what kind of project XnView is:
XnView is not Open Source. XnView is Freeware, free for private usage. For commercial usage, licences have to be purchased and all of the money and Euros go to Pierre, the author of XnView. Contributors do not get any money, all the work is done voluntarily and for free.
Even if it is unlikely, the licence terms might change and XnView might not be freeware at all, anymore.
