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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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).
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:
