The next monthly Parrot release will take place next Tuesday, 20 May 2008. In preparation for the release, we're holding yet another monthly Bug Day, all day Saturday 17 May. Parrot hackers, contributors, fans, and hangers-on will gather in #parrot on irc.perl.org to discuss proposed patches, verify and close bugs, and help potential new contributors download, configure, build, and understand Parrot and languages hosted in the Parrot repository. If you're interested in Parrot, have some free time, and want to get your hands a little bit dirty with code, please join us. You don't need to know how to program C or PIR or even Perl 5, but knowing how to download code from a public Subversion repository and build a C program will be very helpful.
