Hi all,

Introducing the bug squad: Currently there is not much to introduce
except for this idea in my head. Last friday I started a thread about
collecting and fixing pet peeve bugs, the idea behind this thread was to
build a collection of bugs which are high on the annoyance ladder and
are fixable by mere mortals. Building such a collection is just the
start however, the next step is to build a team of volunteers to tackle
these bugs: the bug squad.

I myself will be part of the team, and I'm looking for partners in crime
to squash all those nasty bugs. So what is expected of a bug squad
member? Well the nescesarry skills to hunt down and fix bugs of course
and some time to spare and invest, thats about all. And the rewards,
well beside enormous fame the biggest reward will be a better distro and
a better Linux landscape in general with less bugs and thus more fun.

So come on and sign up today!

I'm game! The bug i wanted to fix is the "CD Burning only works as root for a buncha burners", though it requires significant effort...

I want this bug to be fixed too (see FC6 and cdbruning thread) but we should wait for 2.6.19 (which will allow scsi commands to be enabled for a device from userspace), we should try to backport this changes and get them in the FC kernel before FC6 is released.
