22 Feel free to work on fixing things - there's enough issues that you
23 won't run out of work this decade. Some are easy cosmetic fixes, others
24 will require rewriting the build system from scratch ("upstream parallel
25 compilation bug" ? postgresql upstream for example doesn't see it as a
26 bug, but patches welcome)
28 is a
29 collection of more interesting issues, all of these are also announced
30 to IRC by my messy hack of a shell script by the name of AutoRepoman.
31 #gentoo-bugs, #gentoo-qa on
33 Have fun,
