I understand that spamming is normal on Twitter, but do we really want people to spam General like that? Can't you bring voting back on Bugzilla and take that into account?

That requires a Bugzilla account. And I don't see it as spam. I expect posts in the forums to sometimes spark discussion.

the_dbugfix_campaign_get_your_priority_bugs_fixed/ Nice idea. I wonder if something like this could encourage people that otherwise wouldn't fix bugs themselves to make an attempt -- maybe a month dedicated to fixing bootcamp bugs (or documentation bugs, or ...) with some sort of friendly competition attached. If people that know the compiler's internals would be "on call" to answer questions, however basic, (which is pretty normal already, making it an easy promise) it might encourage people to try it, building a measure of comfort with the codebase and potentially regular contributions in the future.
