+Our Thunderbird friends ask for help squashing bugs. If you have some spare
+time help them and also us because SeaMonkey and Thunderbird use a shared
+codebase for mail and news.
+Some Details from the announcement:
+We are grateful to have a very active set of users who generate a lot of bug
+reports and we are requesting your help in sorting them, an activity called bug
+triage. We’re holding “Bug Days” on <April 8th> (all day, EU and US timezones)
+and <April 13th> (EU and US timezones until 4pm EDT). During these bug days we
+will log on and work as a community to triage as many bugs as possible.
+With several of us working at the same time we can help each other in real time
+– answering questions, sharing ideas ideas, and enjoying being with like-minded
+No coding or special skills are required, and you don’t need to be an expert or
+long term user of Thunderbird. Some things you’ll be doing if you participate:
+  <li>Help other users by checking their bug reports to see if you can
+    reproduce the behavior of their reported problem.</li>
+  <li>Get advice about your own bug report(s).</li>
+  <li>Learn the basics about Thunderbird troubleshooting and how to contribute.
+  </li>
+But we hope you’ll join us on the 8th or the 13th via #tb-qa on Mozilla’s IRC
+so that we can put these bugs in their place which helps make Thunderbird even
+better. If you have any questions feel free to email
+Visit the
+<a href="https://blog.mozilla.org/thunderbird/2019/04/all-bugs-fixed/">Thunderbird Blog</a>
+to see the full announcement.
