What is BugSquad?
The KDE BugSquad keeps track of incoming bugs in KDE software, and goes through old bugs. We verify that a bug exists, and is reproducible, and that the reporter has given enough information. When applicable, we write testcases. Our end goal is to help developers notice valid bugs quicker, and to save their time.
You do not need any programming knowledge to be in the Bugsquad, and it is a great way to give practical support to the KDE community. If you are just starting to learn programming, it is a great way to gain familiarity with the components.
We celebrate bug meetings where we pick a software package and look through all the old Bugzilla bugs to see if they are still valid. Sort of a Bugzilla-cleaning meeting.
When these meetings are 24-hours long, we call them Bug Days. They are usually organized live through IRC — #kde-bugs on irc.freenode.net.
