Re: BSP Coordination

Hi all.

Colin Watson has enabled the old claims page by syncing the
claims every 15 minutes from master to spohr. Thanks for that.

It follows the description from aj's mail from last August[1]

To help coordinate RC bug fixing and BSPs, you can make use of
the "BugSquash Claims" page, at:


It's populated by creating files in


named after your username @debian.org, and entering one bug
number per line.  Developers who're participating in the BSP
should enter the bugs they're working on into there, and might
like to check to see if anyone else has "claimed" the bug to
avoid duplication of work. Once you've got the bug patched
and NMUed, it'll remain on the page for a while, for bragging
rights. Also interesting might be urls such as:


Remember, we're not prospecting for gold here: claims are advisory
only; if you really want to fix a bug, and can't seem to get
a hold of whoever's got a claim, don't worry about it -- fix the
bug yourself, and mail your findings to the bug report. If you
want to do duplicate work, that's your business.
