Welcome to Debian Weekly News, a newsletter for the Debian
DPL election update: One more platform was posted, by Bdale
Garbee, who has quite a long history in Debian. Anand Kumria has
not posted a platform. There has been a low level of discussion on
debian-vote about the elections, but it's been healthily
non-political and quite restrained. The campaigning period is
winding down now, and elections begin on the 7th.
It's another rough week for unstable trackers. Pam was
broken, breaking any services that use pam_limits.so, including ssh
and cron (this is now fixed). More apt changes are afoot, and a
major change to debconf just went into unstable, adding a real
back-end database to that program at last.
The recent bug squashing party was a great success; over the two
day period, some 130 release critical bugs were dealt with. Of
course there are many more release critical bugs to fix before
release. More bug squashing parties are planned..
The dates for the Debian Conference have changed to prevent
conflicts with other European events such as LinuxTag. The
conference will be held "From Monday July the 2nd to Thursday July
the 5th, in Bordeaux (France)".
