I dislike the idea of a bug day. We have well defined bugtracking
interfaces (Community Bugtracker or AUR comment-pages).

The AUR cleanup day was announced on the Arch Linux start page at
www.archlinux.org. We can do that again, but I think the problem was not
that there are too few reactions of users on that announcement but too
few TUs making a decision of packages to keep and packages to delete. We
still have a rather long list of packages undecided on the wiki list and
only a few under the lists "to be kept" and "to be deleted".

So I agree with Ronald in his wish to have us pay more attention on the
Wiki page.

Regards Stefan
