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