My name is Simon Quigley and I am a member of the Lubuntu Team. The
Lubuntu team is running a bug day on Tuesday, July 26, 2016. It’s a spin
of a hug day.

We will have an Ubuntu On Air session on Monday, July 25, 2016 from 19
to 20 UTC. I will give a presentation for the first half, then for the
second half, I will be joined by Walter Lapchynski and we will answer
questions provided to us over IRC. I strongly recommend that you either
attend the session or watch the archive, because we might answer a
question that you have. To attend, go to http://ubuntuonair.com/ during
the date/time I listed above.

What’s a Hug day?

>From the Ubuntu Bug Day wiki page[1]:

"A Hug Day is a special day where the Ubuntu Community comes together
with a shared goal of triaging bugs for a specific package or set of
packages. Working together allows us to share knowledge and give some
much needed assistance to the Ubuntu Developers. The term Hug Day is a
spin on Bug Day; every time someone triages a bug, then someone else
should hug him/her. Why? This is a very special way for us to tell
everyone that we love contributions! And triaging bugs is a really big

What bugs are we targeting?

The Lubuntu team has a team called the Lubuntu Packages Team[2]. It was
created to help track all the bugs related to Lubuntu, and it is a very
useful team for subscribing to all of the Lubuntu-related bugs. We would
like to ensure that this team stays up to date with all the Lubuntu
bugs, so we can make sure that our development team has an eye on them.
To do this, we need to go through the following steps:
 1. Find a bug that affects software preinstalled in Lubuntu.
 2. Triage[3] the bug accordingly, and if it still exists in a
reproducible state, subscribe the Lubuntu packages team.
 3. Add the bug to our known bugs list[4].

Where is the communication for this event happening?

Join the #lubuntu-devel channel on freenode, this is the Lubuntu team’s
IRC channel, and people will be around to help. If you don’t have an IRC
client, Kiwi IRC is a decent web client:

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to visit our IRC channel or
send me an email.

I hope to see you there!
