GNOME love day

	Hi GNOME lovers!

This is the announce of the first GNOME love day.

What is GNOME love day?

	GNOME love day is a project to try to get developers become GNOME
hackers. There are lot of developers around who want to get involved into
GNOME development but they don't know how to do it. The idea of GNOME love day
is to get these developers joining #gnome-love on as well as
some current GNOME hackers, all together.

	Hackers should propose these developers an easy-fix to any of the 
modules they know well, and should guide them on fixing it. Of course, 
for a hacker, looking for an easy-fix (maybe a bugzilla bug), figuring how 
to fix it and explaining another one how to do it will be a bit longer 
than just fixing it himself, but the point here is to teach. After some time
and luck, we will get these people fixing things and doing real GNOME hacking.

	Also hackers will become mentors/trainers of new developers, answering
them on IRC, email, and gnome-love list.

	First GNOME love day will take place Tuesday 2nd March, on #gnome-love
from 8:30AM EST to 8:30PMEST that's 13:30UTC->01:30UTC on IRC

What do you need to join GNOME love?

	You will need to have some programming ability (mostly C programming)
in order to begin to hack on GNOME core. GTK+ knowledge is not requiered, but
If you want to begin hacking on GNOME, these readings are recommended:

	You will also need GNOME source code and a build system:

	Also subscripting to gnome-love mailing list is recommended:

In the other side, if you already are a GNOME hacker, and you want new hackers 
in the GNOME project, and you want to feel the love, prepare an easy-fix list,
or just come Tuesday to #gnome-love

	Thanks in advance!
