As a long distance runner, I'd argue that sprints take you only a few
meters and than you have to stop and catch your breath. Measured over a
longer period of time, continuous jogging or even walking will take you
I therefore wonder if there are ways to make it more attractive to fix
bugs in general. Not only during bug sprints? Maybe we could have some
