Saturday, 13 October, is the monthly Parrot Bug Day. Parrot hackers will be in #parrot on irc.perl.org all day to answer questions, apply patches, fix bugs, and clean up the bird for the upcoming release on Tuesday, 16 October. If you've ever wanted to contribute to Parrot but don't know how, join us in IRC. There are tasks for everyone from Perl novices to hardcore C hackers; many require little more than a Subversion client, a development environment, and a couple of hours of your time.
The next bug day will be 17 November 2007, in preparation for the release of Parrot 0.5.0.
