This week's Hug Day will focus on '''TARGET NAME'''! The goal of today's bug day will be to DESCRIBE THE REASON YOU CHOOSE THE TARGET.

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 [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/5-A-Day 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-20080710
 * Add bugs to 5-a-day as usual
 * And when done with hug day run: 5-a-day --remove-tag hugday-20080710


== Stock Responses ==

'''Waiting for reply'''
## Add any common responses that might be useful for your huggers so they don't have to spend time to think one up or search for them. ["Bugs/Responses"] will be useful. Also add a comment to recomend when it should be used and other action than should be performed. Replace the example with your own brew.

Set the status to 'invalid' if there is not enough information to fix the issue and the bug reporter has not responded to requests for more information. Reiterate the needed information for the record.
{{{
Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. There has been no communication for over two months, I am setting the report to invalid until the needed information can be attached.

Please attach the following information:

After attaching the information requested above, set the bug status to 'new' to signify that it is ready for triage / review.

== Progress ==
## it is nice to have pictures which you can do by directly linking to a graph at http://people.ubuntu.com/~brian/complete-graphs/ just by adding a hyperlink to the graph in the wiki page
## example - http://people.ubuntu.com/~brian/complete-graphs/compiz/plots/compiz-1day-new.png
## at the end of day I usually save the graph to my local system and then add it as an attachment to the wiki page
## example - attachment:compiz-1day-new.png


== More Bugs ==
## If you think the list you made might be depleted, or want to let others know how to find similar bugs in the future, add a link to a 'live' version.

This list is just a nibble of the [https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+expirable-bugs bigger picture].

This week's target is *drum roll please* TARGET!
 * 135 New bugs need a hug
 * 39 Confirmed bugs just need a review

 * Thursday July 03rd
 * http://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/20080703

Can't stress it enough: everyone can help!

BLOG IT! Especially those on the Planet! There are people who want to
help but don't know how and sit on the sidelines of the blog-o-sphere
reading; I need your help to get those eyes from blogs to bugs. Let us
combine blog-powers to educate, "Bug work is a fun way to get involved!"
I think the best effect will be if we coordinate together in our blogs:
 * Publish about the Hug Day Thursday July 03rd to get everyone excited.
 * Hug some bugs and add yourself to the HugDay's wiki for your readers!


Make a difference: Join the Hug Day on Thursday the 3rd. We will be in
#ubuntu-bugs (FreeNode) all day and night, and will be ready to answer
your questions about how to help.

Running a HugDay is a great way to get acquainted with the community and learn some new skills. It's all very informal so don't be shy. Smile :)

Identify a Target

Organizing a HugDay starts with choosing a list of bugs to hug. You can choose whatever packages matter most to you but check out UbuntuBugDay/Planning for previous and planned HugDay and add your ideas!

Initial E-mail

To make sure everyone is on the same track, and that there are no other plans for the week, send a simple e-mail to BugSquad after adding your idea to the UbuntuBugDay/Planning page. The cookie cutter e-mail is just an example, you should put your own twist in.

ubuntu-bugsquad@lists.ubuntu.com

HugDay Target

Hi, I am ... from ... I enjoy ... and ...

I would like to organize a HugDay for <package> on <date>. Are there any other plans for this day?

Your Name Here.

In accordance with https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/Organizing

Wiki Planning

After identify a target you need to add it to the Ideas section on the Planning page as described:

Wiki Stuff

After you're ready to run, add your HugDay to the wiki!

Date Changes

Hug day page creation

  • https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/<Your Date Here>?action=edit

    • The date should be a combination of <year><month><day> 20080215 = Feb 15, 2008

    • Select the UbuntuBugDay/TaskTemplate on the left side list when createing the new page.

    • <<<TARGET>>> should be replaced with your HugDay target

    • <<<DATE>>>> should be replaced with the date of the hug day for the 5-a-day statistics.

    • Save and keep reading on how to make the list of bugs semi-automatically

Generate the bug list

In attempt to make sure the most recent bugs also are hugged but all timezones are considered, I would usually generate the list of bugs two days ahead of the big day.

Bughelper

The first method is a command line utility designed just for this task.

sudo apt-get install bughelper

Here are some example usages that will save the list to AFile.txt so that you can copy and paste the list to the wiki.

bugnumbers --status=confirmed -p xorg --format=bugday --sort="-nr" --file=AFile.txt
bugnumbers --status=Incomplete -p xorg --format=bugday --sort="-nr" --file=AFile.txt
bugnumbers --status=New -p xorg --format=bugday --sort="-nr" --file=AFile.txt
bugnumbers --status=New -p acpi-support --format=bugday --sort="-nr" --file=AFile.txt
bugnumbers --patch -p acpi-support --format=bugday --sort="-nr" --file=AFile.txt
bugnumbers --needs-forwarding -p openoffice.org --format=bugday --sort="nr" --file=AFile.txt

Open Office

Sometimes Bughelper cannot query what you want exactly, so to turn a search results from LaunchPad into the proper format for the wiki here you are.

Copy the table of bugs into Open Office, then delete all the columns except the # and Description. Column A should be the bug #'s and B should be the description. Then fill C with the following formula. Now you can copy and paste column C to the wiki.

=CONCATENATE("||<rowbgcolor=none> [[https://launchpad.net/bugs/";A1;"|";A1;"]] || ";B1;" ||  ||" )

Announcement E-mail

Inform the Ubuntu-News-Team about the next BugDay and its target until Saturday evening (The week before the BugDay) so they are able to add information about the BugDay to the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter. You will have to subscribe to the list before sending the mail.

ubuntu-news-team@lists.ubuntu.com
