The Debian/GNOME bug weekend  

Do you like Debian? Do you like GNOME? Are you free on February 27-28?

If so, please reserve your week-end, because you are going to help us do a massive cleanup in the insane amount of bugs submitted against GNOME packages.

You don’t need any special skills. Just join on #debian-gnome and we’ll provide all the guidance you need.

Ultimately, the goal is to have, at the end of that week-end, all bugs against GNOME packages in one of those states:

  • closed
  • forwarded upstream
  • having a fix ready to upload
  • waiting for more information from the submitter

After this, maybe the BTS can become useful again for the GNOME team.

how about posting it to d-d-a?
Heya, very cool initiative, thanks for it!

How about posting an announcement of it on d-d-a, I think it deserves the largest audience possible.

Could you please be a little more specific as to how and where we join "#debian-gnome"? Thank you!

Re: The Debian/GNOME bug weekend
Clicking on the link should be enough if you have already an IRC client installed.
Otherwise, install xchat-gnome, connect to the OFTC network and select the #debian-gnome channel.

Unfortunately I won't have time to help, because fortunately I'll be on ski vacation. :)
