gEDA-user: Bug triage

Hello everyone,

Peter Brett seems to have gone mad... he's triaging bugs and coding
fixes at an astonishing rate. Rather than our newly imported bugs in
Launchpad sitting abandoned and ignored, they are being FIXED!

There are a lot of bugs which are still "New", ie.. haven't been
confirmed or triaged yet, and I'd like to encourage EVERYONE to come and
help with that task.

If everyone did ONE bug, we'd be a _lot_ further on with this job.

Pick a bug from here:
https://launchpad.net/geda/+bugs?search=Search&field.status=New  (gEDA)
https://launchpad.net/pcb/+bugs?search=Search&field.status=New   (pcb)

Grab "git HEAD" of whichever package the bug is in (if you don't have it
already), and try to confirm whether the bug is still present or not.

Bug present: New -> Confirmed
Bug absent: Make a comment - set bug to "Invalid",
                                        "Fix released", or
            depending on how confident you are that the bug was bogus,
            fixed by some commit since the bug reported, or "Incomplete"
            if you ask the reporter a question which requires answering.

Does the bug affect you personally?
If so, hit the link about 2-3 inches down the page, under the title,
which lets you state that?

Interested in getting email about progress on this bug?
Hit "Subscribe" on the right hand toolbar.

Is your name on any bug?
Be sure to link the Sourceforge import with your SF email address to
your "proper" Launchpad account. Click your name if it isn't already

For example, Ineiev:

Lets all help with this task.. a lot of hands will make light work.
