Debian/Ubuntu Bug Squashing Party

Luke Faraone

Jan/26 Sat 01:00PM-11:59PM W20-557

Enrollment: Unlimited: No advance sign-up

From 1 pm until late evening, there will be a Debian/Ubuntu bug-squashing hackathon at the SIPB office. This is an opportunity both to get a little more familiar with the systems that many SIPB projects build on, and to give back to them and the larger free software community. SIPB ran this sort of hackathon several times in the past, and it's been popular and has gotten good work done. We're hoping to do that again. We'll have a couple of Debian and Ubuntu developers to help you with understanding how these projects work and to help get fixes into Debian and Ubuntu. If you're looking to get involved with a SIPB project that uses Debian or Ubuntu and particularly Debian packaging, I especially encourage you to come, as this will be a good chance to learn more about packaging and potentially to help these projects by getting some of our local fixes upstream. As with all SIPB hackathons, we'll be getting snacks and dinner. We hope to see you there!
