13     Credits
14     =======
15    
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 liquidx 1.2 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.

53     Rationale
54     =========
55    
56 liquidx 1.2 Gnome [1]_ , Mozilla, Zope [2]_ , and other open source projects do something similar with good
57 g2boojum 1.1 success.
