I've been doing exactly what the instructions on the wiki page ask for, off and on at my own convenience, for about a year, so for me this is at best a non-event. That said, if other people want to do it, I certainly have no objections.

That's how I got started working with wine, by triaging old bug
reports. Great way to get started learning about the different areas
of wine, even without touching the code.

It would be helpful to post this to wine-users as well. There's a
sticky on the forums that roughly describes this (albeit, not as a
singular day's events, but more for testing old bugs that have been
around for over 3 months without any activity).
