I am absent that whole weekend.

First, as you are our "bug guy", it is good that you organize this. To
improve effectiveness it may be good to have a list of bugs that shold
be looked at, ordered into categories like you suggested above. Maybe
you should provide a wiki page "Bug Day" where users can add bugs to the
respective categories. Then there should be a rough timeline on what
will happen when.
Maybe it will also be good that you moderate the #archlinux-bugs channel
and kick people that do not discuss bugday-related stuff to keep the
discussion on topic. IF we do the latter, there should be an
announcement about it with clear rules, so people won't be pissed when
they are kicked or muted.
