Edubuntu Bug Day - 10 March

Small Bugs are Important Too

Bugs may sound cute and harmless, but often even small software bugs can have a huge impact on the overall user experience.

The current development version of Edubuntu, codenamed "Natty Narwhal" which will in time become Edubuntu 11.04 is shaping up quite well. However, quite often attention is focussed on the big issues and sometimes the smaller problems just don't get the attention they also deserve, which results in feedback like "Hey! Why didn't you fix this, it would've only taken you 15 minutes!".

So, to give special love and attention to all Edubuntu bugs, we're declaring 10 March an Edubuntu Bug day!

The Details

The bug day will last all day on 10 March 2011 in collaboration with the Ubuntu Bugsquad team on the #ubuntu-bugs IRC channel on freenode.

The plan is to take a look at all related open bugs, do as much triaging and fixing as possible and then put together a report at the end of the day and identify and prioritise remaining issues targeted for the final release.

If you're new to bug squashing (or even scared of them) we still encourage you to drop by on IRC and say hi! You're even welcome to join as and nag us about your favourite bugs.
