The Debian 600000/1000000th bug contest

As the bug #500000 mark was turned on September 24th 2008, Debian developers and contributors need a new challenge.

So, again, a small contest has been set up. The principle is very simple: please place a bet (one per person) about the day bugs #600000 and #1000000 will be reported.

The winner(s) will be the person(s) placing her|his|their bet as close as possible to the real moment bug #600000 and #1000000 are reported.

Please use only one line per person. No e-mail addresses, please, there's nothing to win except the admiration of the Debian crowd. Please copy/paste the first table row and replace the not so random example there by your own name and the date by the date you bet the Debian 600000th bug will be reported.

The same stands for bug #1000000.

Everybody is welcome to play. Please do not abuse the system, just play by the rules.

Please also feel free to fix the use of English language in this introduction.

This page is no longer opened for updates since December 31th 2008. Bets are now carved in stone until bug #600000 is reported. Then the page will be reopened (a new list of bets for bug #1000000 will be built so that, when the time comes, we have four sets of bets with more more suspense!).

For the record, Bug #500000 bets.

Please use YYYYMMDD notation below.
