"It's a long way from the cold boulevards of Paris to
the searing heat of Brisbane but Stefano Zacchiroli has spent the
20-odd hours needed to make the trip because he wants to tell
people in the FOSS community about the vital role that the Debian
GNU/Linux Project still has to play.
"Zacchiroli, the current leader of the project, told iTWire that
his trip, to attend the 12th Australian national Linux conference
in Brisbane, had been borne out of a talk which he presented to the
last DebConf, the annual summit of Debian developers, in which he
outlined what was still special about Debian.
""My fellow developers liked what I presented and they suggested
that I take the same message elsewhere," Zacchiroli (pic below)
said. "It was almost deadline time for submitting proposals for
talks to the LCA folk but I just about made it in time."
