Gentoo bugday is back
For once you have tasted Gentoo you will compile the kernel with your eyes turned red monitor-squared, for there you have been and experiencing the raw power of Linux. There are some days I want to go back to the early ages of Linux, some days I want to use top notch packets and bleeding-edge software, but today I will debug — for this is Gentoo Bugday !
It has been a while since the last meeting of bug-busters, and today this Saturday many users and developers are joining the Bugday event. Back in the day, it used to be a monthly event that takes place every first Saturday, hosted in the IRC Freenode at the #gentoo-bugs channel. The ultimate goal is to refresh the bug list, meaning open or close bugs, fix any problems, possibly update some packages and last but certainly not least improve the documentation. Generally speaking you do almost everything related to bugs, such as verifying ebuilds and version bumps. It would be great if you could collaborate to the Gentoo community. You see, there is no need to be a Gentoo guru or something extraordinary (eeh, ok, well, I suppose one to be a Gentoo user is something by itself) but you need an actual Gentoo installation (even a virtual one could do the job).
From Gentoo Forums:
“” The idea is for people of all interests and abilities to fix bugs from Gentoos Bugzilla.
Help, encouragement and mutual support will be provided in real time in #gentoo-bugs at irc.freenode.net
If you want to help but don’t know how or where to start, join #gentoo-bugs and ask.
If you are an old hand, in between fixing bugs, drop in and help focus the enthusaism of those that may be less skilled than yourself.
A bugzilla account is not required but if you want to post patches for your bugfixes, it will help. “”
However, if you consider yourself as an active Gentoo user then you must know by now that every day is a bugday! So, make a cup of coffee and join the event ;)
