Evolution, like any other gnome module, has gone through many code and
design changes as part of GNOME 3 clean up as well as to improve the functionality in last one year.
So it’s a good time to dig out old bugs, do bugzilla clean up, pick up and target right set of bugs for next stable release which hopefully will be Evolution 3.0.

Goals of Bug day

(a) Bug triaging
(b) Identify list of important bugs for next stable release
(c) Clean up of old and untriaged bugs

We will be mainly targeting bugs filed against Evolution 2.28.x and 2.30.x and will triage all the bugs against Evolution 2.32.0 stable release which is released on Sept 29, 2010 as per GNOME 2.32 schedule.

What does it mean for users ?
Bugs (Evolution 2.28.x and 2.30.x) which are most likely fixed in
Evolution 2.32.0 will be closed as Fixed or may be needinfo-ed to
reporter to get his response against current stable Evolution 2.32.0

People who are new to bug triaging, please read below URLs and it’s a
