Hello Ubuntu Lovers,

The next Hug day of the new year will be held the Tuesday 29th of
January. The Desktop team has uploaded to Hardy the new Nautilus which
is using gvfs  (a gnome-vfs replacement) since this is a new feature
we're looking for brave bugtesters, so the bug day will be focus on
Nautilus bug reports. We will be triaging New bug reports, confirming
that the old Nautilus bugs are still reproducible with the new one and
asking reporters to test their bugs with it. The event will be held in
#ubuntu-bugs on Freenode.  The list of targeted bugs and tasks is posted

Our goal is to deal with all of the bugs on that 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,

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 January Tuesday 29, 2008 In all timezones. 
But again, you can go there every day and help with triaging the bug tracking systems.

If you're new to all this, head to

Have a nice day,
