Hello Ubuntu Developers,

The first Patch Day [1], was held on May 5, 2010.  We were able to
review 111 bugs with patches over a 49 hour period.  There were 185
unreviewed bugs in the queue at the start of Patch Day which came down
to 74 unreviewed bugs by the end of the day [2], and down to 69 as of

I'd like to thank all the folks who helped us review patches.  Your
assistance has helped us do 60% of what we targetted.  Review Leads,
thank for volunteering your time in helping with Patch Day.

Patch Day is a concept similar to Hug Days, where we will test patches
and forward working patches upstream. If the bug is critical enough, we
will try to get the patch applied in Ubuntu immediately.  We'd like your
help to get these submissions reviewed and if necessary sent upstream so
that they don't bitrot and to encourage people to continue helping us
improve open source software.

Warm Regards
Nigel Babu
