We are going to have a Bug Squashing Party hosted by the DebianWomen group. Everyone that is interested in Bug Squashing is invited, but we'd specially like to invite interested women that wish to help Debian, but haven't yet dared to fix any bugs.

We will have a list of selected bugs, easy and difficult, and will have a ranking of who fixed more bugs during the length of the BSP. Also, we will do a bunch of 1-hour-long tutorials, that are intended to help people fix bugs, and understand how things are done in Debian.

It will start on Friday, July 27th afternoon, going on through Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th. It'll be hosted on #debian-women, in irc.debian.org

UPDATE: We didn't get any offers for the tutorials wanted for the BSP, and many people seem to be on holidays during July and August, so the BSP has been postponed until there's more people around. The suggested dates would be the first weekend of September, i.e. from Friday August 31st, till Sunday September 2nd.
