Sadly something like 20 to 30 bugs aren't easy to solve even by the best
developpers in only 5 days[e.g. look at the tokyocabinet bug, I don't
think I'm unskilled even if there is a lot of better DDs than me, and I
just don't know where to start]. but still that is clearly a good idea.
I would sign on this.
