Hello Ubuntu Lovers,

This Thursday 19 of June you need to be ready to squash some bugs 
because we'll be celebrating a GNOME Power Manager Hug Day!, 
our goal is to deal with all of the bugs on this list: 


Who can join the Hug Day? Everyone. You don't need to be a developer.
You don't need to know to code. Everyone is welcome. If you don't know
how to help, then just come and we'll explain you everything.

In a Bug Day, you can 
* work in a nice team,
* make sure the bug reporters concerns are heard,
* gather all the information needed so developers can fix bugs,
* close useless bugs,
* find out where the bugs come from,
* do a lot of 5-a-day!,

and eventually

* work together with upstream to make changes happen,
* get experience in hacking and fixing bugs.

Where to join the Hug Day? #ubuntu-bugs on freenode IRC. And you can go
there every other day too!

When to join the Hug Day? Next hug day is on Thursday 19 of June
In all timezones. 
But again, you can go there every day and help with triaging the bug
tracking systems.

  While you are welcome to apply to join the Ubuntu Bug Control team at
anytime, Hug Day is a great day to join!


If you're interested in helping to make the next release of Ubuntu even
better - please stop by.  And feel free to ask bdmurray, pedro, heno 
and the rest of the Ubuntu Bug Squad team for ways to help out.  We hope to
see you there and your name on the list of bug triagers!

Have a nice day,
