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. The majority of the people that have had an opinion have
44 suggested a weekend day. We will have bugday's on a Saturday. Gentoo
45 developers can try to get some of the users to help them out. A prize to
46 the most succesful developer was suggested. This is an idea to keep in
47 mind for the future. I guess I'm going to be the one coordinating this
48 until I get help, but when I do get help in coordinating this we can
49 coordinate via irc if all parties are capable, or email if not. I will
50 send out a notice telling the details at least one week in advance to the
51 -dev, -core, and -user mailing lists.
52
53 Rationale
54 =========
55
56 Gnome [1]_ , Mozilla, Zope [2]_ , and other open source projects do something similar with good
57 success.
