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

Abstract

Gentoo Linux should have one day a month that is devoted to clearing out bugs, and accepting new ebuilds from bugzilla. This one day a month should not replace a developers normal bug tracking duties. This "bug day" should become -something that involves the user community to make them feel closer to the +something that involves the user community to make them feel closer to the developers.

Motivation

I believe this would help keep the number of bugs in bugzilla at a lower level. This would also be a good chance for some user submitted ebuilds to be commited that would normally go overlooked. I think this is a good idea. We could turn this into a big deal for the user community

Specification

This doesn't require any coding. It just requires one day each month that little other than bug closing will happen. I would like to see all developers -participate, but I know it's unlikely that we could get everybody free on the -same day. The majority of the people that have had an opinion have -suggested a weekend day. We will have bugday's on a Saturday. Gentoo -developers can try to get some of the users to help them out. A prize to -the most succesful developer was suggested. This is an idea to keep in -mind for the future. I guess I'm going to be the one coordinating this -until I get help, but when I do get help in coordinating this we can -coordinate via irc if all parties are capable, or email if not.

I will send out a notice telling the details at least one week in advance to the -dev, -core, and -user mailing lists.
