Since we don't stop being overloaded here at Logilab, and we've got some encouraging feedback after the "Pylint needs you" post, we decided to take some time to introduce more "community" in pylint.

And the easiest thing to do, rather sooner than later, is a irc/jabber synchronized bug day, which will be held on Wednesday november 25. We're based in France, so main developpers will be there between around 8am and 19pm UTC+1. If a few of you guys are around Paris at this time and wish to come at Logilab to sprint with us, contact us and we'll try to make this possible.

The focus for this bug killing day could be:

  • using tracker : getting an account, submitting tickets, triaging existing tickets...
  • using mercurial to develop pylint / astng
  • guide people in the code so they're able to fix simple bugs

We will of course also try to kill a hella-lotta bugs, but the main idea is to help whoever wants to contribute to pylint... and plan for the next bug-killing day !

As we are in the process of moving to another place, we can't organize a sprint yet, but we should have some room available for the next time, so stay tuned :)
