Invitation to the BSP in Mönchengladbach (Germany), 02-04 March 2012

Hi, to help Debian freeze[1], there will be a Bug-Squashing-Party in Mönchengladbach, Germany on the weekend of 02-04 March, 2012. It will be held in the office of the German Open-Source-Support-Center at credativ GmbH[2].

Even if you are not a Debian developer, but are interested in helping
Debian to get all the open release critical bugs fixed, you’re welcome
at the BSP. There will be enough developers around to sponsor your
NMUs. Some more information about BSPs and RC-Bugsquashing can be found
at [3] and [4].

Targets for the BSP are:
* Take care of bugs found by piuparts[5].
* Help the ipv6 release goal by adding ipv6 support to programs which do
not support it yet. There is a list of bugs to work on, but continue
to file new ipv6-related bugs if you find them – and fix them!
* Find obsolete and unmaintained packages in testing/unstable and file
RoQA removal bugs.

Coordination for the BSP is done on the wiki page[6], where you’ll also
find transport and accommodation details. Mönchengladbach is located
about 30km west of Düsseldorf and 50km north-west of Cologne.

If you need accommodation please add yourself to the list on the wiki
page as soon as possible.

Hope to see you here,
