I’m starting up the weekly bug scrubs again for the 4.1 cycle. The aim is to gather in the #wordpress-dev IRC channel each Friday at 4PM GMT (October 17th 2014 16:00 UTC) and spend some time triaging a particular report or a particular subset of tickets. Sometimes it lasts 20 minutes, sometimes people are around for a few hours.

This Friday we’ll start with the 4.1 milestone report to trim it down a bit (it’s in good shape at the moment) and then move onto any other tickets which are candidates for inclusion in 4.1.
