My First Debian Bug Squashing Party

I participated in my first Debian Bug Squashing Party (BSP) this weekend (August, 5th - 7th). The goal of such (real or virtual) "parties" is to reduce the number of release-critical bugs in Debian. For more details, see Squashing Release-Critical Bugs in Debian: A Primer.

I fixed a few simple FTBFS (Fails To Build From Source) bugs (mostly by applying existing patches from the BTS) in xlife, mmv, xcal, and dansguardian (I messed up a bit with dansguardian, sorry).

It was mostly a lot of fun, and I can now proudly proclaim that I helped to get out the next stable release faster ;-)
