20080807

There's no incoming Hugday

Warning /!\ This team will be merged shortly with the Ubuntu Quality Team. Please join the new team!

This week's Hug Day will focus on Grub! The goal of today's bug day will be to make a user's system boot without intervention and make many people's first impression of Ubuntu rock!

Here we have a sampling of bugs to work on for Hug Day. After you have triaged or fixed a bug put your name in the last column and set the row's background to green by adding lightgreen in the first cell of the column after "background-color:" and before ";". This will let people know that the bug in that row has been hugged.

5-a-day-ing

During hug days you can also do 5-A-Day for this one you can do the following in order to tag your work on the hug day:

  • 5-a-day --add-tag hugday-20080807
  • Add bugs to 5-a-day as usual
  • And when done with hug day run: 5-a-day --remove-tag hugday-20080807
