I've had an idea on a good way to decrease the RC-bug count without burning
myself out: I've resolved to fix one RC bug a day at least until there are no
more trivial RC bugs left. I started Friday by NMU'ing libxklavier; over the
weekend I worked on uploads for tcl8.* and tk8.* and then fortunately found
the maintainer is working on fixing bugs for those packages. For today,
unless I hear something on bug #335137 within a couple hours, I'll do an NMU
for libwmf; and for tomorrow, I just noticed there's an RC bug against kdeedu
for me to fix myself.
I figure if I keep this up, I can take care of 30 RC bugs a month; and if just
9 other people join me, that will make 300 RC bugs a month.
