Help us to release “Wheezy”: participate to our BSP marathon

The Debian Project is pleased to announce that in the next few weeks Bug Squashing Parties (“BSPs” [1]) will take place in several countries. The main focus of a Bug Squashing Party is to triage and fix bugs, but
it is also an opportunity for users less familiar with the BTS to make other contributions to the Debian project, such as translating package descriptions or improving the wiki. Debian developers will be present
to help contributors understand how the project works and to help get fixes into Debian.


Below is a list of upcoming Bug Squashing Parties; don’t forget to
regularly check our events page [2] to find more.
