Title: "How to fix a bug in open source software (even if you're not a
One of the often mentioned benefits of open source is the ability for
users to fix bugs themselves, which may leave people who aren't
programmers feeling left out. But with standard linux tools, tracking
down a bug in common Linux programs may be easier than you think.
Mozilla developer Akkana Peck will discuss the process of describing a
bug, searching the source code to pinpoint the problem, then either
fixing the bug, or filing a detailed report which will help developers
in finding a fix.
Members will have an opportunity to take a few minutes to...
* Describe their latest Linux discovery
* Ask questions and get help from other members
* Discuss Linux projects
You can just stand up and talk, or give a short demo or presentation.
If you need audio/visual support for your Members' Minute, please
contact Bill in advance to arrange for your needs.
Although it is NOT required, we like to have an idea of how many
people to expect, so if possible please email rsvp at penlug.org if you
are planning to attend.
