Hi :)

To be forwarded to librarians, system librarians, educators, devs, 
sysadmins and other people that could be interested in contributing to Koha.

Here is the poll:

Reminder of the modalities:
The idea is to test patches to contribute to Koha. The biggest 
bottleneck for having more bugs fixes and enhancements is patch testing. 
Thus this call for getting together as Koha users.
No need for particular skills, just basic Koha usage.
You can come an leave at any moment, even for a short time it's possible 
to get simple stuff moving forward.
We will use a VoIP call with chat tool to speak and eventually 
screenshare. It's possible to join without sound and only use chat. So 
if you are at the front desk and there are not much patrons you can 
still test patches ^^ So, whichever communication mode is the most 
convenient for you.

No need to have a local Koha instance. Just with a web browser we can 
use the sandboxes [1] to have temporary Kohas to test most patches and 
do whatever we want without bad consequences.
Here is a resource about how to test patches using sandboxes:
