Hi everyone,

The bug fixing day that I announced last week has arrived.  Please take 
some time today and help improve the Kepler system so that we have a 
great release.  We need help finding bugs, fixing bugs, testing whether 
fixes work, and reviewing and revising documentation.  So join us.  My 
instructions from last week are:

> Here's how it will work. On January 23, please log into the #kepler IRC
> channel on irc.ecoinformatics.org to coordinate with other developers.
> Then take a look at the current bugs targeted for the release and choose
> one that you want to tackle:
> http://bugzilla.ecoinformatics.org/buglist.cgi?product=Kepler&target_milestone=1.0.0rc1&target_milestone=1.0.0&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&order=bugs.target_milestone,bugs.bug_severity,bugs.priority&columnlist=bug_severity,priority,assigned_to,bug_status,target_milestone,short_short_desc
> Open the bug, and read to the end of the comments. If nobody else has
> taken the bug yet, please assign it to yourself, adding a comment that
> you are taking the bug for Bug Day so that others can tell you are
> working on it. Fix the bug. Ask for help on IRC #kepler if you need it.
> Help others on #kepler IRC if you can. Also, if you find other bugs that
> you think should be fixed for the releases, enter them in Bugzilla and
> discuss them on IRC. We'll all celebrate when the bug count for the
> release hits 0.

Of course, please continue finding and fixing bugs even after today!

Thanks in advance for your contributions,
