Fedora kernel bug day.

We've been planning on doing one of these forever, but never seeming
to get around to it.

The kernel gets a lot of bugs (possibly more than any other package),
and as such, we've got nearly a thousand bugs open right now, and just
three people working on it full-time.

The problem we've faced with triage efforts in the past is that for many
bugs, the person doing the triage really needs to have at least some kernel
knowledge to know what information to ask the reporter.

However, there are some basic tasks that would help us out a lot, like
making sure bugs are assigned to the right people etc.
There's a first pass at some 'how to' ideas at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/KernelTriage

We'll be doing this in #fedora-kernel next Monday (22nd)
I expect that the wiki page will continue to evolve as we start working
on this, and perhaps this can even become a regular thing.
