GNU project seeking volunteer bug trackers

Post by Richard Stallma » Tue, 13 Aug 1996 04:00:00



The GNU project is looking for two or more volunteer bug trackers.
The bug trackers will read the bug-gnu-utils mailing list, dispatch
bug reports to the appropriate maintainers, and use GNATS to verify
that the bugs get fixed.  This way we can make sure bug reports don't
fall through the cracks.

We don't expect bug trackers to fix bugs themselves, so you don't need
to be an expert programmer to be a bug tracker.  What's needed is a
sense of responsibility.  The total amount of time involved is not
large, but the list needs to be checked frequently so that bug reports
reach maintainers quickly.

We're looking for two or more bug trackers so you can divide up the
work, provide coverage even when someone is on vacation, and arrange
together to check the list frequently.

If you'd like to help do this work for the GNU project, please send me
email.

 
 
 

1. Translation Project seeks volunteers

The Translation Project (or TP for short) aims to get the maintainers
of free software packages, benevolent translators and users all
together, so that computers and systems gradually become able to speak
many languages [1].

Over the past few years, a large number of language teams [2] have
started to work on maintaining translations of the messages of many
different programs [3].

If you are interested in contributing to the translation project,
please contact your team, and have a look at [4].  If you find that
there is no team for your language yet, you may consider starting one
[5].

If you already contribute to some translation project, or if you are
merely interested in discussion translations of software messages and
documentation to your native language, you can still join the mailing
list of your team - we happily provide the forum for open discussions.

If you are the author of a free software package and are interested in
getting translations for your program's messages, you might consider
having us host your "textual domain" (i.e. the catalog of all your
program messages).

If you have any questions on the TP, don't hesitate to ask

We are looking forward to your contributions,
