Jan Wagner: Chemnitzer Linuxtage 2012

As announced 3 weeks ago, the Debian project was present at Chemnitzer Linuxtage. Several talks and workshops where held by people related to the Debian project. At the booth we had talks and discussions with exhibitors and visitors, unfortunately I didn t had much time to visit more than small parts of two lectures. Unfortunately (for the visitors) we didn t had any merchandising on board, while we received several requests. On Sunday Axel surprised us with some leftovers from fosdem of merch. At the booth we had a demo machine running Babelbox and xpenguins, which attracted visitors very well.

Sebastian Harl: Airport security ...

Supposedly, my low, casual shoes contain some longish and slender piece of metal in the sole. At least, that's what the X-rays at the airport detected when I was flying back from FOSDEM. While it isn't shaped like a typical knife, I didn't know how to tell it apart from a potentially hidden blade. Well, I guess that's what the people doing the security control are trained for ... Interestingly enough, it was only detected at the Zurich airport - neither the metal detectors in Nuremberg nor those in Brussels seemed to care about it.

Sebastian Harl: collectd 4.3.0 uploaded to unstable

Yesterday, collectd 4.3.0-1 has been uploaded to Debian unstable. The most important changes since 3.x are (in chronological order): See the changelog for details. About collectd:
collectd is a small daemon which collects system information periodically and provides mechanisms to monitor and store the values in a variety of ways. It is written in C for performance. Since the daemon doesn't need to startup every time it wants to update the values it's very fast and easy on the system and allows very fine-grained statistics.

Norbert Tretkowski: Productive weekend

Last weekend was quite productive. First, Joerg Jaspert updated the dak installation on, which means we can also use ~ in version numbers. What does it mean? We no longer need to lower the Debian revision of the version number, 1.2.3-4 becomes 1.2.3-4~foo instead 1.2.3-3foo. Martin F. Krafft suggested to use 1.2.3-4~bpo.1 instead 1.2.3-4~bpo1, and I like the idea, it looks indeed better. Daniel Baumann already modified the contribute page on our website. Speaking about the website... it's now based on a wiki, thanks to Sebastian Harl, who implemented the old website design into the new Dokuwiki installation.
