Help us to release Wheezy: participate to our BSP marathon

November 10th, 2012

The Debian Project is pleased to announce that in the next few weeks Bug Squashing Parties (BSPs) will take place in several countries. The main focus of a Bug Squashing Party is to triage and fix bugs, but it is also an opportunity for users less familiar with the BTS to make other contributions to the Debian project, such as translating package descriptions or improving the wiki. Debian developers will be present to help contributors understand how the project works and to help get fixes into Debian.

Below is a list of upcoming Bug Squashing Parties; don't forget to regularly check our events page to find more.

If you want to organize a BSP, you can find all the necessary information on this wiki page. The Debian Project invites all users and contributors to attend these events and make Wheezy ready for release sooner!
