Bug Day was madly exciting today. It's still going on, really, but I'd been in #bugs for 13 1/2 hours already so I was totally wiped and just had to leave. I love the international face of GNOME; besides the US we had bug day folks from at least 17 different companies (judging from a grep of the 'has joined' messages from my log.) Lots of new faces, too, from these various places. As usual, new bug people start slowly, but a lot of people doing a little bit of work adds up pretty fast- the primary link we were focusing on today (UNCONFIRMED bugs in core modules) dropped by 75%, and the number of un-triaged crashers in core modules also dropped significantly. Overall, a really good day for the bugsquad, and a fun day for me too.

[Later] Dave kindly pointed out that I've completely sold my soul, since I said 'companies' above where I meant 'countries.' Clearly I paid too much attention to Jennifer Government. And maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to get some more free time. :)
