16     I stole this idea from liquidx who probably stole it from one of the many
17     projects that do something similar.

20     Abstract
21     ========
22    
23     Gentoo Linux should have one day a month that is devoted to clearing out bugs,
24     and accepting new ebuilds from bugzilla. This one day a month should not
25     replace a developers normal bug tracking duties. This "bug day" should become
26     something that involves the user community to make them feel closer to the
27     developers.
28    
29     Motivation
30     ==========
31    
32     I believe this would help keep the number of bugs in bugzilla at a lower level.
33     This would also be a good chance for some user submitted ebuilds to be commited
34     that would normally go overlooked. I think this is a good idea. We could turn
35     this into a big deal for the user community
36    
37     Specification
38     =============
39    
40     This doesn't require any coding. It just requires one day each month that
41     little other than bug closing will happen. I would like to see all developers
42     participate, but I know it's unlikely that we could get everybody free on the
43     same day.
44    
45     Rationale
46     =========
47    
48     Gnome, KDE, and other open source projects do something similar with good
49     success.
