Happy New Year everybody!
I have a little New Year's proposal for you all, users and developers.
Take a look to the bugs you have reported in Debian, this can be very
easily done by browsing:
where USER@DOMAIN.NET is the email address you used for reporting. Then update the bug reports information in the following way:
- If the bug is already fixed, send an email to BUGNUMBERfirstname.lastname@example.org with a quick explanation like "it is not reproducible anymore" and the bug will be closed.
- If the bug is still there, send a email to BUGNUMBER@bugs.debian.org and specify all the new information you are able to add: newer software version where it still applies, way of reproducing the bug.
Alternatively, you can look at the bugs of your favorite package and help the maintainer. Go to http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?pkg=PACKAGE replacing PACKAGE with the application name, look at the bugs and send a email to BUGNUMBER@bugs.debian.org with all the information you can gather about the bug: if you can reproduce it (and if yes, how), versions affected, also you can make a patch...:) etc.

Great! Thank you very much! I always wanted to write in my blog something like that. Can I take part of your post to my site? Of course, I will add backlink?
