Instructions on the wiki

Hello Everyone,

On the 11th July 2020 from 1400-2100 UTC we will be running a coordinated
virtual Bug Squash. FreeBSD has a Problem Report (PR) database[1] where users
and developers are encouraged to file issues and regressions they find in both
the base system and ports tree.

A Bug Squash is a focused session where we try to triage, process, fix and
close as many reports as we can from the PR database. This July 11th Bug Squash
we will focus on closing as many PRs with patches as we can, some rationale for
this is written up here[4].

While we do process and close issues there are a large number of PRs with
patches attached that should be processed. At the time of writing there are:

- all base system PRs with patches (639)[2]
- all base system PRs with patches, but assigned to no one (277)[3]

We will host a google meet at the start of the Bug Squash to provide an
introduction to the process and will use the #freebsd-bugs irc channel on
freenode to coordinate work, triage and discuss PRs and patches.

We look forward to joining you to squash bugs and commit fixes.

- Tom and Allan
