Great idea, and Mondays are ideal for this (smaller queues to get the
patch in).

However Monday Jan 20th is the day before the icehouse-2 branch cut, so
I fear a lot of people will be busy getting their patches in rather than
looking after gate-blocking bugs.

How about doing it Monday, Jan 13th ? Too early ? That way icehouse-2
can benefit from any successful outcome of this day.. and you might get
more people to participate.
