In late September, NetBSD developer Elad Efrat quickly organized a community "bugathon" for the weekend of Sept. 23 and 24. In an email to NetBSD-announce, he said "we ... started looking for PRs we knew how to deal with; slowly more people came aboard, and we ended up brainstorming solutions to various problems, solving them as we went. The word spread quite fast and we suddenly had a few users helping us with the work as well."
Around 30 developers and 20 users participated in this first NetBSD Bugathon and over 270 problem reports were closed.
Due to its success another was scheduled for last weekend. Elad reported to NetBSD-users: "This time we had three times the people, allowing us to discuss and work on even more bugs. All in all, we managed to close over 310 PRs this weekend."
