Or maybe not, at least for old bugs which are less likely to have

rest of the week.
Being myself a potential contributor, I could scratch only 1 hour during
the official hours since it was during office time and there were other
things going on. But then in the evenings and weekend I found more time.
I guess this pattern might apply to others as well.
Triaging at the same time than others and chatting it's nice, but you
can also do quite a lot alone. Bug changes trigger email notifications
and in many cases you get other people involved that way.
I would still pick a few hours during the week for team work, but these
"Bug Days" maybe need to be called "Bug Weeks" and plan
