69 <p>I stole this idea from liquidx who probably stole it from one of the many
70 projects that do something similar.</p>
71 </div>
72 <div class="section" id="abstract">
73 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" name="abstract">Abstract</a></h1>
74 <p>Gentoo Linux should have one day a month that is devoted to clearing out bugs,
75 and accepting new ebuilds from bugzilla. This one day a month should not
76 replace a developers normal bug tracking duties. This &quot;bug day&quot; should become
77 something that involves the user community to make them feel closer to the
78 developers.</p>
79 </div>
80 <div class="section" id="motivation">
81 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id7" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
82 <p>I believe this would help keep the number of bugs in bugzilla at a lower level.
83 This would also be a good chance for some user submitted ebuilds to be commited
84 that would normally go overlooked. I think this is a good idea. We could turn
85 this into a big deal for the user community</p>
86 </div>
87 <div class="section" id="specification">
88 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id8" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
89 <p>This doesn't require any coding. It just requires one day each month that
90 little other than bug closing will happen. I would like to see all developers
91 participate, but I know it's unlikely that we could get everybody free on the
92 same day. The majority of the people that have had an opinion have
93 suggested a weekend day. We will have bugday's on a Saturday. Gentoo
94 developers can try to get some of the users to help them out. A prize to
95 the most succesful developer was suggested. This is an idea to keep in
96 mind for the future. I guess I'm going to be the one coordinating this
97 until I get help, but when I do get help in coordinating this we can
98 coordinate via irc if all parties are capable, or email if not. I will
99 send out a notice telling the details at least one week in advance to the
100 -dev, -core, and -user mailing lists.</p>
