Plone migrations can be a bit naughty and not nice for our users. The focus of this Tune-Up will be product maintenance. If you have a product you created or help maintain that is not Plone 4 compatible, today is the day to commit to making it so. If you do not have a commitment to any one product feel free to choose any open ticket in the tune-up list or in the Trac instance on plone.org.
Plone Tune-Ups are regularly scheduled online events that give developers the chance to select and work on resolving issues. Not everyone wants to be a core developer or maintain a product in Plone, but most people have the ability to squash a few bugs, provide QA or improve documentation. Every time you give time back to the community you make Plone a better solution for everyone. As an open source system, Plone relies on developers of all interests and skill levels to participate so that Plone can continue to be a leader among open source Content Management Systems. Experts will be available in a special IRC chat #plone-tuneup if you need help getting started.
THE PRIZE: THE EVER POPULAR PLONE TUNE-UP T-SHIRT
The Tune-Up prize will be a rare and coveted Plone Tune-Up t-shirt. In the past, these shirts have been awarded for: closing the most tickets, helping new people get started or generally being helpful to others. Up to one shirt may be awarded per Tune-Up at the discretion of the Tune-Up managers.

-> On Tune-Up day, go to #plone-tuneup in IRC and ask for a ticket to work on if you don't know which one to pick. If you're wondering about the sort of tickets people start out with, look for tickets tagged as "newbie" or "greenbelt" .

-> Get the Plone 3.3 buildout at http://svn.plone.org/svn/plone/plonenext/3.3
-> Fixes for the 4.1 are on http://svn.plone.org/svn/plone/buildouts/plone-coredev/branches/4.2/
-> Paste error messages and code to http://pastie.org/ to share them with others in the Tune-Up room.
