Everyone is invited to join in on the two scheduled massacres. The first is November 5-7 (WordPress is stretching this one through the weekend to accommodate as many schedules as possible) and the second will take place November 14-16. Want to kill vermin right alongside Mark Jaquith? Head over to WordCamp NYC (which coincides with the second hunt) and visit the special Hacker Room, a location set up for developers to visit and work on 2.9 bug tickets together.
There are 3 ways in which to participate:
- Test: Review all the patches that need testing by reviewing WordPress' report here. Jot your results in the comments section for all to review.
- Fix: WordPress has also provided a report for bugs that need patches. They encourage you to target the ones that seem like they'd wreak the most havoc or would have the biggest impact once fixed.
- Report: If you find a brand new bug, create a ticket.
