What would you say about Weekly Bug Party? I'm not talking here about
bugs solving, but deciding what to do with filed tickets.

The idea is to meet for one hour (or so), each week and decide what to
do with newly created tickets. This could involve:
  - setting the real priority of ticket
  - assigning tickets to devs (epsecially those that were set to high priority)
  - assign tickets to versions (milestones)
  - closing invalid tickets
  - transferring ticket to be handled (decided what to do with it)
next week on another WBP [Weekly Bug Party]
  - evolving: commenting (getting additional info from users), setting
more appropriate component, fixing/adding tags

This is probably something that Asterix (and some other people from
time to time) does all the time. The idea is to face all those tickets
in Trac and prioritize them. I think collaboration is a good way here,
as there is lots of opened tickets. When we work out all those old
tickets WBP will be all about tickets filed during last week (or those
transferred to be handled that week).

Of course everyone would be still encouraged to perform all of the
above mentioned actions outside WBP time window :)

Preparation here would involve:
  * creating new report on Trac [1] that shows all unassigned tickets
sorted by date (I guess newest tickets go first as these correspond to
current version and are more urgent to solve; by each WBP we could go
deeper into forgotten lands)
  * decide when WBP should take place (I guess some late evening hours
would be acceptable) - of course this could be changeable.

What do you think about it? :>
