it's time for the 7th Python Bug Day. The aim of the bug day is to close as many bugs, patches and feature requests as possible, this time with a special focus on new features that can still go into the upcoming 2.5 alpha release.
The bug day will take place on Friday, March 31st, running from 1PM to 7PM GMT (9AM to 3PM Eastern time). You don't need to be around all day; feel free to stop by for a few hours and contribute.
Where and How? ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
To join, stop by the IRC channel #python-dev on irc.freenode.net, where efforts will be discussed and coordinated. We'll collaboratively go through the Python bug database at SourceForge and fix things as they come up.
IMPORTANT: *No* prior knowledge of the Python source is necessary to participate! You'll get all assistance the developers can offer for starting up with helping, this is in fact a good opportunity to learn the basics.
Bug day participation helps the developers and makes Python 2.5 a better release by reducing the backlog of bugs and patches. Plus, it's fun!
