Results of November’s ZF Bug Hunt Days

Zend Framework held its third monthly Bug Hunt Days in November on the 19th

oversees the French translation of the manual, as well as several
components) and Thomas
(German translator, i18n/l10n principal, and current
component lead on Zend_Validate, amongst other components); each resolved 11
issues. Each will receive a Zend Framework t-shirt this month for their

of December. If you haven’t yet submitted your CLA and wish to participate,
