Today is the first day of November. Last year we started a new initiative called Bug Squash Month ๐ŸŽƒ and weโ€™re running it again this year!

Everyone can participate. We had a lot of newcomers last year and I got the same feedback from all of those I had a chance to hear from:

  • it doesnโ€™t take much to get started,
  • it is rewarding and you see the impact you have immediately,
  • itโ€™s exciting!

The transition to Gitlab will probably happen soon, so now is a good time to clean up the old bug tracker before we migrate anything. So join us on a Bug Squash Day ๐ŸŒž, organize a local Bug Squashing Party ๐ŸŽ‰, or try to triage your 5 ๐Ÿ› a day.

Just like last year, we organised a Bug Squashing Party in Strasbourg for Bug Squash Month. It happened yesterday at my place and was a bit low key as I didnโ€™t have that much time to organize. Four guests were originally planning to come to Hackcendo HQ, but something came up at the last minute for two of them and we ended up with just three participants. We had a good run nonetheless and managed to close 14 reports, ask for more info on a handful, as well as update fields on quite a bunch of them. All of that was done in a cheerful atmosphere accompanied by Christollen brought by Jean, and infinite tea supplies from my stash.

Weโ€™re only two thirds into the month, so itโ€™s not too late to organise a BSP in your area. Happy squashing!
