I'm interested in fixing a bug in Ubuntu, but I don't want to step on anyone's toes. How do I "claim" a bug to let people know I'm working on it?
(Screenshots of where in Launchpad to click please)
To assign a bug to yourself in Launchpad, first navigate to the bug page (e.g. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apache2/+bug/397393 )
This shows that the bug is not assigned to anyone at the moment. Click on the Unassigned link
Finally, click on the Assign Me link (the little yellow exclamation point)
The bug is now assigned for you to work on it.
