64 <p>I stole this idea from liquidx who probably stole it from one of the many
65 projects that do something similar.</p>

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