Bug Triage Day January 17th-18th 2009


If you are a user of PEAR and have wanted to contribute to an open source project, here's a great opportunity.

We run a bug day every 3 weeks or so, on #pear & #pear-bugs across two days.

We basically try to improve the quality of incoming bugs - write test cases, make sure they are reproducible.We also try to boost overall code quality - unit tests, documentation and other improvements.

If you've got a package you use commonly, or bugs you filed some time ago that haven't been fixed; this is a good time to get involved.

Join us on January 17th-18th 2009; or pop into #pear to say hello and ask questions.
