Yes, it's a lot more fun to work alongside others and you get to have
some beer with new friends, your patches benefit from direct
contributions of others around the same table and there is always room
for more social involvement between people in Debian. We all spend too
long alone with just a laptop for company.

Bug squashing parties are *social* events where bugs happen to get
fixed.

If everything was to be done only remotely there would be no bug
squashing parties at all. There might be lots of bugs fixed but that
isn't a party.
