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.
