The Bug bash is on from 6am - 6pm Pacific Standard Time (GMT-8) on the #samba-technical channel at irc.freenode.net. Talk to coffeedude if you need help getting starting.
Today's bug day theme is Vista. There are several open bugs filed against Samba and Vista clients. it is also a good idea to have a Windows XP client setup as well to verify that whatever might be failing with Vista actually works with XP. This will also allow you to do comparative tracing using Wireshark between the two clients and see why one succeeds and the other fails.
You can download the current set of vista patches against Samba 3.0.24 and start testing. The patches set was generated using Quilt and will will be updated throughout the day. All of these should already been in the SAMBA_3_0_25 svn tree. If you are testing against that code base, please ignore the previous link.
If you don't have a Vista client to test with and would still like to help out, please spend some time testing any client and any configuration against the SAMBA_3_0_25 branch.
Summary: The first bugzilla day went off pretty well. We were able to close off several bugs (Bug 4356, Bug 4093 (partial fix), Bug 4188, and several printing issues). The final patchset from today's work will be posted at http://www.samba.org/samba/patches/.
