Next meeting of the paper cuts team will be tomorrow

The paper cuts team will be meeting tomorrow (Tuesday 19th February 2013) in #ubuntu-meeting on Freenode at 1900 UTC. See here for a translation of that time into your favourite timezone.

This is a great opportunity for anyone who's been interested in getting involved with Ubuntu development, but for whatever reason hasn't gotten round to it, to dip their toes in. The paper cuts project covers many areas of Ubuntu development, from bug triaging to bug fixing, from packaging out patches to packaging our tools. We work other teams whenever our work takes us onto theirs, and we work with upstreams to fix the bugs in their packages that Ubuntu ships. Our tasks are small and relatively simple, perfect for new contributors who don't wan't to get in over their heads too soon.

If you've got anything you'd like to discuss, then head over to the wiki page for the meeting and add it to the agenda. Once you've done that you should head over to the paper cuts mailing list and give us a heads up that you've done it so we can have a quick chat about it before the meeting - the more we discuss before the meeting, the more time we'll have in the meeting to talk about other things.

Come along tomorrow night and hang about in the chatroom. You don't even have to say anything if you don't want to. Just lurk and get a feel for how we do things. I'll be online afterwards so if you want to follow up on anything that came up in the meeting, or just ask me anything at all about the project, then just ping 'notgary' on Freenode (that's me btw :)).

Hoping to see some new faces (well usernames) there tomorrow.
