Bug Squashing Party Feb, 4 - Feb, 6 2005

Hi all.

The last weeks were very successful regarding the development of
the RC bug count, the number of sarge related bug reports is currently
pending around 100[0] which is a reduction by almost 50% compared to
my last BSP announcement one month ago[1]. See the latest release
update[2] for more details.

To keep this number low until the other blocking issues for a freeze
are removed I propose another Bug Squashing Party next weekend,
February, 4th to February, 6th.

Some possible specific targets of this BSP could be

 - fixing any remaining bugs from the recent mass bug-filing against
   packages that don't include the text of the GNU Free Documentation
   License but include man pages licensed under it.
 - targeting some of the long standing, complex RC bugs
   (e.g. #284875, #278495, #271427)

But before it gets boring, there's of course plenty to do apart
from that, like

 - QA uploads for orphaned packages
 - going trough packages removed from sarge and identifying candidates
   for orphaning, removal or fixing

As usual coordination should happen in #debian-bugs on irc.debian.org,
and RC bugs should be claimed so that the work in progress is visible
on the claims page[3] and on the "unofficial" RC bug coordination page[4].
Other tasks can be noted and explained on the BSP wiki page[5].
