13 The Debian Project is pleased to announce that in the next few months
14 Bug Squashing Parties (<q><a href="http://wiki.debian.org/BSP">BSP</a></q>s)
15 will take place in several countries.
16 The main focus of a Bug Squashing Party is to triage and fix bugs,
17 but it is also an opportunity for users less familiar with the BTS
18 to make other contributions to the Debian project, such as
19 translating package descriptions or improving the wiki.
20 Debian developers will be present to help contributors
21 understand how the project works and to help get fixes into
22 Debian.

25 During the coming weekend, 17-19 February, a BSP will be held at the
26 <a href="http://www.irill.org/">IRILL offices</a> in Paris, France.
27 This event will also be an opportunity for
28 potential contributors to meet Debian Developers or Maintainers. Numerous
29 regular contributors will attend this BSP and can help newcomers to
30 fix their first bugs.
31 For organizational reasons, registering on the
32 <a href="http://wiki.debian.org/BSP/2012/02/fr/Paris">Debian wiki</a> is
