Here a small guide for those who want to help with bufixing.

Website is:


The simplest thing to help is to look at a report and ask yourself the  

	"What is the next physical, down to earth action that need to be done
          to get this issue resolved?".

Actually, adding a statement about that to the report alone would help  
*a lot*. You
don't need to do anything, just write down what should be done next.

And magically, often the next step is trivial. The report links to a  
website which has
a changet? The next step is to attach it to this report.
The report describes that method x and y in Class Z need to be removed?
add a changeset (or a slice in the inbox) to do that.
