Motivation

To help foster community outreach and growth, Eclipse will have a day ("Eclipse Bug Day") (preferably the last Friday of each month) that is dedicated to:

  • Bug triage
  • Guiding new developers in submitting patches

Because Eclipse committers don't have all the free time in the world (that would be awesome though), some bugs tend to enter the abyss without some coordinated effort to keep up with them. Bug days help keep bug-fixing on the radar and provide a great lightweight opportunity for contributors to help.

In the end, this should help users and developers feel closer to the committers that help drive Eclipse. This also provides the opportunity for constant contributors to even attain committer status over time!
