Hello Ubuntu Lovers!

With only four weeks left until release, Bug Hunting became our favorite
sport. Lots of people work within the Ubuntu BugSquad [1], some of
Ubuntu's teams have set up weekly bug goals [2] and everybody is trying
to get as many bugs fixed as possible for Dapper. If you ever wanted to
get involved, this is the perfect time to get started. We're having a


This is the perfect time to get things sorted, the last bugs reported
upstream, annoyances fixed and make Dapper the super-stable Release we
wanted to have. Our focus for this time's HUG DAY will be to get all the
crashers examined, forwarded upstream or fixed by us. [3] will be our
main tool to achieve this.


Planning is one thing, but we'll surely stick to our concept of success:
the Hug Day. This is a very special Bug Day: on Hug Day, when someone
closes 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 contribution.

In addition to that we added [4] - a page where you can list your most
annoying bugs. Fixing these bugs will give extra points and extra hugs
of course.


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,

and eventually

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

We will try to triage as many bugs as possible, but specifically look
into the targets outlined at

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 May 3rd, 2006 In all
timezones. But again, you can go there every day and help with triaging
the bug tracking systems.

We can't stress it enough: everyone can help. So join us for the Hug

Make a difference: join the Bug Day on Wednesday, May 3rd. We will be in
#ubuntu-bugs (Freenode) all day and night, and will be ready to answer
your questions about how to help.

If you're new to all this, head to

Have a nice day,
 Daniel (for the BugSquad)
