"It's BugDay again! Mozilla will be wrapping up the 0.8 development cycle in the next few days so join us in #mozillazine on (use Mozilla's chatzilla if you don't have another IRC client) and help shake out any remaining bugs. BugDay is a weekly collaborative bug hunting, reporting and triage effort that takes place on IRC every Tuesday. If you're new to Mozilla then stop in and ask for help getting started. We've go all kinds of activities that need your help and friendly folks ready to assist you in getting more involved."

The number of incoming bugs is pretty consistent. It's usually around 500 to 800 bugs a week. The number of people with can confirm and can edit permissions is going up at a strong clip and the number of good bugs filed by those people is going up. The total number of bad bugs (duplicates, invalid and worksforme) is also going up with all the new accounts. This means that we need more help triaging those bad bugs to keep them out of the way of developers and we need more help teaching those reporters how to use the tools to report better bugs. The state of things in Bugzilla is healthy though and the volunteer community that has grown up around the task of maintaining sanity in the database is simply amazing. I honestly don't think that Bugzilla would have survived as a tool for development if the community had not come together like it has.
