Are you going to announce on the forums and main page too?

Remember this page: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bug_Day_TODO .  
It is fairly empty at the moment, but it is handy if someone (non-dev) 
scans through the bug tracker finding bugs with solutions and lists 
them, it allows the participating devs to focus their efforts.

I probably will not make it this weekend as I have a fairly packed work 
schedule. Have fun!
