Some (inexact) statistics from yesterday bug squash day:

63% of pull requests addressed: 43 of 68
39% of issues addressed: 31 of 79

Thank you to everyone who participated in the ROS Bug Squashing party.
We greatly appreciate all of the folks who contributed by fixing bugs,
responding to comments, and attending to pull requests. A special thanks
to: Kei Okada, Jennifer Buehler, Krystian, Gebis, Chris Mansley, G.A.
vd. Hoorn, Rich Mattes, Nikolaus Demmel, Robert Haschke for signing up
on the planning sheet and tackling bugs and pull requests. We were
excited to see so much activity, and look forward to the next time!
