+# <acronym title="Release Critical Bugs of the Week">RCBW</acronym> - #17
+
+Given that my "most blogged" Debian activity since last summer has been RCBW,
+what else could be my first post of 2010 if not a RCBW update? With further
+ado, here are **this week squashes** by yours truly:
+
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 559898]]</span> - flowcanvas - fixed in
+  unstable, tag as needed
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 562503]]</span> - man-db - downgrading
+  severity (RC-ness was in zlib, which is now fixed)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 541610]]</span> - docbook2odf - switch dep
+  away from (now gone) libxml-sablot-perl
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 528088]]</span> - ttf-aenigma - fonts are
+  actually free, as detailed in debian/copyright
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 544113]]</span> - tiger - remove dep on
+  essential package (bonus: misc deps/debhelper fixes)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 561466]]</span> - ttf-beteckna - rebuild
+  against fixed defoma (thanks Julien Cristau who spotted a wrong fix of mine)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 561470]], [[!debbug 549987]]</span> -
+  halevt - add missing dep on policykit (bonus: QA upload with misc fixes)
+
+No particular remarks, but a long overdue **tip of the week**: the
+[turmzimmer BTS](http://bts.turmzimmer.net/details.php) interface is a great
+tool for bug squashing. Still, it has a issue with comments which can slow down
+some activities, but which you can help getting better! First of all you should
+know that *comments are per-package and not per-bug* (which might not be
+obvious, especially since often packages listed on the page have just one bug
+per-package). That means that **you should generally mention the bug you are
+referring to when you post comments**, unless the comments are really
+package-specific.
+
+Additionally, **old comments are persistent**, so you might get baffled by old
+comments that "invalidate" current issues. So, if you notice a comment that
+predates the actual bug numbers, **please remove the comment** by editing it
+and stating "no comment" in the form.
+
+Ah, happy new year (in case you care about sharp, calendar-based time
+partitions).
