Bug Squashing Party

In order to help Debian towards the release of Squeeze, a Bug Squashing Party will be held during LSM/RMLL.

Even if you are not a Debian developer, as long as you are interested in helping Debian to get all the open release-critical bugs fixed, you're welcome at the BSP. There will be enough developers around to sponsor your NMUs.

There are some more information about BSPs and RC-Bugsquashing.

Coordination for the BSP is done on the wiki page.


2010 Libre Software Meeting is a free (as a beer and as a speech) and non commercial conference with talks, workshops and round tables about Free Software and its uses. The LSM goal is to provide a place for exchange between Free Software developers, users and stakeholders.

LSM has been organized this year in Bordeaux from 6th to 11th of July, 2010 by a set of local LUGs and organizations with the help of several public and private sponsors.

Over three thousand volunteers from all over the world work together to create and maintain Debian software. Translated into over 30 languages, and supporting a huge range of computer types, Debian calls itself the universal operating system.
