This Saturday is a great opportunity to give a try to a new concept: A day dedicated to fixing bump request bugs and therefore improving on the update-to-dateness and the bleeding-edgity of Gentoo while decreasing the pile of open bugs a bit more aggressively than on a usual Gentoo day.
I plan to announce winners after. A bumpday winner is someone who
- fixes at least one bump request on the given day
- has been fixing the most bugs among all participants
- is technically detectable as a winner, i.e. all related bugs must:
- have the word bump in the summary
- have changed status to resolved/fixed between the bumpday’s date and the day after
- still be resolved/fixed
- be assigned to you (not someone else, not a herd)
It’s perfectly okay if you join in just for winning as long as you apply the necessary love and care to the bumps you do.
Another thing that should be noted: bump your packages only, otherwise check for permission first. No answer means no.
As I don’t have any bump request assigned currently (no, don’t even think about it!) I plan to spend the time writing a script to get performance result.
Now bump the **** out of your packages
