I've done two bug hug days for X so far. Hardly anyone showed up to do triaging, and we did not gain any new members from it.

A mentorship program is actually a really good idea. We've talked about some ideas around that, but the challenge so far has been finding people willing to give it a try.

Having a variety of graphics cards seems like it should be important but in my experience so far, it's useful but not critical. What I find most useful is having 2 computers - one for your regular daily use that's kept stable, and a second one you can break X, debug, ssh into, etc.

I agree with you about the pain of proprietary drivers from a developer perspective. But at the ubuntu distro level mostly we're interested in the packaging of the drivers, which is open source and could benefit from community involvement in improving it.

comment How can I run Dwarf Fortress in text mode (ncurses) on my Linux VPS?
I got that symbol not found error, and installing lib32ncursesw5-dev and lib32ncursesw5 (I'm on 64-bit) solved it.
