For those of you who are getting started, if you find that you don't
have sufficient rights to change resolutions or certain fields in
bugzilla, please just drop me a line witht the changes you want made and
I will commit them when I wake up. We still need to get all the perms
stuff worked out, so everything might be a little rough around the edges
this time around. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.
Saddle up the horsies and git yer shotguns kids, its time for a Bug Day!
The Fedora BugZappers Triage Team, men, women and children alike. More
information is available at

The theme for our first bug day will be "Pick Your Poison." Anything in
bugzilla is fair game! The goal will be to try and triage as many bugs
as possible, close out duplicates as well as linking to upstream bug
trackers. Additionally, we have the special honor of trying to file and
close out as many Documentation Bugs as possible

To help the project, to help the developers and to earn rewards. Yes
you heard right, rewards. There will be awards given out to certain
participants at the conclusion of Bug Days. Awards for things such as
most active, most reported, most closed, most marked upstream an so on
will be announced within a week and all rewards sent out. Also,
sometimes we will have special rewards that we give out just for fun, at
random, because well, we're nice guys and gals.

what's in the treasure chest.
See you on Friday.
