Bug Jam in Berlin!

It’s time for another Bug Jam again. Today we’re going to meet again at c-base and have a great time triaging bug reports and help fixing some issues in intrepid. If you can’t make it this time, no problem. Since last month we meet:

  • every 2nd Tuesday in the month and
  • every 4th Thursday in the month

from 17:00 to 20:00 local time.

Never triaged bugs before? No problem, we’ll show you how.

Can’t bring a laptop? No problem, c-base has Ubuntu PCs which we can use.

So what’s going to happen today? I’m going to propose to triage bugs with patches attached. There’s a big mass of bugs that have workarounds and patches attached. Some of them lack documentation or a link to the upstream commit or some of them probably won’t apply against the latest version in intrepid.

We’re currently discussing how to best deal with this kind of reports on the ubuntu-devel@ list. Whatever the outcome is, we’re going to benefit from patches and bugs that were triaged.

I hope you come in masses. This is a great opportunity to get involved.

My 5 today: #280806 (tomboy), #279207 (swfdec0.6, swfdec-gnome), #190688 (firefox-3.0, gnome-terminal, synaptic, tsclient, inkscape, thunderbird), #262246 (nemiver), #281841 (devscripts)
