Original session: HowTo: test a patch and make a difference

Ever seen that sidebar headline that professes "234 critical patches", wanted to help, but then realized you don't know how? Not to fear! I can revv your patch-testing prowess by showing how you can select the proper issue for your skill level, test it effectively, and report clearly on the results. Remember, humans write these patches, and if nobody tests, they'll come back to a lifeless, desolate, forlorn issue queue day after day. Don't let this happen to our coders! Test a patch today!

The Society for Venturism has chosen me as the recipient of its charity for this year, to hopefully offer me cryonic preservation when the time comes. And this month, Longecity, an excellent forum for the discussion of issues related to extending the lifespan of humans, has offered up a matching grant of up to a thousand dollars to help out! So help out! Please.
