Hold tight for another Packaging Training session. This time it’s going to be David Futcher (bobbo) and Daniel Holbach (dholbach) who will talk about what the Patch Reviewers Team is doing and what they’re trying to achieve with Operation Cleansweep.
Be part of the awesome initiative, put this time into your calendar:
This is an EXCELLENT way to get involved if you’re not afraid of having a look and patches and getting in touch with others about them. If you can’t make it, we’ll have logs up for grabs later on.
