I am pleased to announce that the Michigan LoCo Team is holding a Bug
Jam on June 9th at 6:30 pm.

What is a Bug Jam?
Every day people report bugs about Ubuntu in the bug tracker Launchpad
[0] but the number of bugs reported is more than the current bug
triagers can effectively handle.  In short, the Ubuntu community needs
more bug triagers.  But how do you triage bugs?  Bug Jams are events
where people who are interested in learning how to triage bugs get
together to learn how to do this and answer everyone's questions.  It is
a fun learning event.

Also, it is a great way to get started doing your 5-a-day and add your
name to this list and increase our team's ranking:

When and where is our Bug Jam?
It is Monday June 9th at 6:30pm at the Main branch of the Clinton-Macomb
Public Library [1].  We will be in a conference room with free wifi to
library card holders.  People without local library cards can sign up
for one in 5 minutes, but if you are planning on doing that, please try
to show up a little bit early.  Directions can be found here:

What should I do before the Bug Jam?
Check out some of the bug triaging resources online right now like:

There is a wealth of information linked to from this page:

What do you do after the Bug Jam?
There are plenty of restaurant/bar options in the area to celebrate a
jam well done and eat dinner.

Feel free to email the mailing list for coordinating rides and asking
questions before hand.
