Bug Squashing Parties
This page is intended to be used to coordinate the work at Bug Squashing Parties (BSP).
A Bug Squashing Party is a come-together (either virtual or real-life) of Debian Developers and Debian enthusiasts on a specified timeframe where these persons try to fix as many bugs as possible.
To add a new BSP page, please enter a string like "2011/01/de/Berlin" (year, month, country code, city) into the box below.
Please use the email@example.com mailing list to coordinate BSPs.
If you have never held a BSP before, you might want to look at the how to host a BSP.
If you have never fixed a bug, never been at a bug squashing party, you might want to have a look at BSP/BeginnersHOWTO.
What you can do
Fix RC bugs.
Fix bugs in orphaned packages]. Also take a look at the [[https://qa.debian.org/orphaned.html of orphaned packages that not yet have set their maintainer field to the QA group.
Fix tricky bugs tagged "help".
Fix important bugs
While fixing a package, please take also a look at non-RC/non-important bugs of that package that could be fixed by the same NMU, especially for l10n bugs (or adding amd64).
Please see the Developers Reference section on NMUs for details on how to do NMUs.
Possible targets of NMUs and/or patches
These are both packages that need someone to prepare a patch for a non-trivial RC bug or packages that just need a NMU for an existing patch. Please discuss !NMUs in the #debian-bugs IRC channel before actually uploading.
For the following packages either help with fixing bug or with testing the package was requested:
