Well, I am going to be out of town visiting my father this weekend (on 
top of finishing my final project for graphics; damn OpenGL and 
lighting).  And the following weekend I am going to be visiting friends 
out of town before I start working full-time.  After that I am available.

Perhaps we should hold another one of these for the beta?  That way any 
bugs or patches that require more feedback and testing from this bug day 
for the alpha can get it at another bug day.

As for telling who is working on a bug or patch, perhaps someone could 
write up an IRC bot?  Then people can just say ``<tracker #>: working`` 
and such, allowing people to query by asking ``<tracker #>: status`` and 
have it say who is currently working on it.  But I have no clue how 
feasible that is since I don't know how IRC works under the covers 
(heck, I barely know how to log on).
