Recent RC-Bug activity

Remember the one rc bug a days activities from Steinar and Zack? Well, maybe I won't make to one rc bug per day, but at least I could blog about some of my recent activities. Maybe it motivates some others?

As you can see, finding fixable rc bugs is certainly possible. So please step in :)

BTW: If you don't have upload rights yourself, but prepared an NMU / patch, feel free to ping me and I'll take a look and try to sponsor your NMU. Just ask!
