Update: Patch needs Sponsor - List of easily NMUed RC bugs
I went through the RC bug list and collected Bugs with trivial patches
and sorted them a bit. They realy don't need much work so if you have
a minute pick one. If you want to NMU any of them check the
then currently claimed bugs (url under claimed bugs).
Changes (~24h): pending (-2), fixed(+16), patch(-1).
Keep up the good work sponsoring those uploads.

By they way:
How do you claim a bug? How does/Can a non DD claim bugs?
I would love to have this added to the BTS. Have a "Claim" link on
each webpage where one can add ones email and a timeframe (24h/1d/1w)
before the claim expires.
Is there an Bug-Squashing-Party webpage anywhere I should make readers
aware in mails like this? A HowTo? Irc channel? ML?
Here we go, the remainders for today:
The same problem comes up again and again, allways the same fix.
