As the bug #600000 mark was turned on October 12th 2010, Debian
developers and contributors need a new challenge.

So, for the third time, a small contest has been set up. The principle
is very simple: please place a bet (one per person) about the day bugs
#700000 and #1000000 will be reported.

The winner(s) will be the person(s) placing her|his|their bet as close
as possible to the real moment bug #700000 and #1000000 are reported.

There is nothing to win but the pride of being the person who
predicted our bug report rate for the next months|years, just what
René Mayorga won by winning the bug #500000 prediction game
( the very same
René Mayorga winning the bug #600000 prediction (

The bet page is a wiki page:

It will be closed on November 30th 2010. Bets will be kept statically
until bug #700000 is reported.

Please note that bets for bug #1000000 placed back in 2008 are kept on
this page under "Bets for bug #1000000, placed after bug #500000, in
2008". Do not modify that section but record your bet in "Bets for bug
#1000000, placed after bug #600000, in 2010". this time, let's change and have someone else than René as
