Thorsten Glaser: FrOSCon 2010 and other sundries

The FrOSCon 5 - 21./22. August 2010 booth plans have finalised, I am rather content:

	               I   STANDPLAN FROSCON 2010
	  F reeWRT
	  M irBSD
	  D ebian
	                     C = Collectd
	 C     G rml

This is especially good, as XTaran will be shared among (at least) Debian, Grml, FreeWRT; same for me plus of course MirBSD; kimnotyze is FreeWRT but may help with MirBSD; benz and gecko2 probably are MirBSD but gecko2 could help with FreeWRT, tokkee was interested in FreeWRT too anyway.

Some days, you just love software.

Thus, let me re terate it for all of you:
(removed from Planet Debian) Well, now that the Debian Release Managers have sent their freezing bits around *shudder* Squeeze is frozen. Well, at least everything I have my hands in has migrated. I m still not persuaded. I also can t decide which looks worse (KDE 4 or Win 7), tending towards KDE 4 (Read on for more controverse/questionable statements.)

Holger Levsen: FOSDEM videos released

In a nice coincedence with the release of Lenny (cheers!!1), the low-quality versions of the videos from the Debian DevRoom at FOSDEM 2009 are available now!

Better quality versions will be encoded and uploaded by Ben over the next days. I'd also like to collect the slides from the talks there, so if you had a talk there, please send them to Wouter and/or me, and Wouter, please send me the slides you collected on the presetation computer ;-)

Basically I'm very happy with our results, excpet for two things: sadly the computer running dvswitch wasn't powerful enough to do picture in picture (and due to time constraints we weren't able to switch to a more powerful one), so we'll have to plan this better next year. And second, I have no real clue how useful our streaming efforts are, I believe the recordings are useful, but in both cases feedback from people who find them useful is appreciated! Covering FOSDEM is certainly a lot of fun, but it's also a lot of work and leaves not much room for seeing other parts of the conference. So a short reply (I'll post this to d-d-a with reply-to set to -project) will be very much appreciated! :)

Big thanks go to Womble2, edrz, xerrako, Q_, danielsan, DaCa, tokkee, luca, Yoe, Ganneff, franklin, huhn, luk, CarlFK, daven and some more volunteers I cannot remember right now! Also not to be forgotten the FOSDEM crew & volunteers for an awesome event and the people from CCC Hamburg who came by car and took a lot of audio/video/computer equipment for us (and left 90min later than planned! Thanks again!)! And also Debian (via the DPL) for some 120 Euros to rent equiqment and for buying batteries and the always needed duct-tape!

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.

Aigars Mahinovs: You are next!

We need you ...You are next! Tokkee and I are doing the mugshots this year and we need your cooperation. Mugshots are a great way for people to link the name to a face and remember that link even after several years. Liw did this as his project last year and it was great success - many people have now a better way to link a persons IRC nickname to their face which in turn reduces the tension in communication as you can very easily know who is the person you are speaking to.
There are people who avoid the mugshots and i wanted to ask them to reconsider. Mugshots is not a beauty pageant - in Debian people are judged by their merits. Mugshots are useful tools in future on-line communications, tools that could reduce the aggressiveness and flammability in the Debian IRC and mailing lists.
It is not the holy grail, but it helps. So I ask every participant of Debconf - help us make this mugshot gallery complete by contributing your own picture. And thank you very much to the many people that already did.
If you want to have your mugshot taken then listen out to when mugshot sessions are taking place - we take all mugshots in front of the cafeteria door, usually during the food times, so you have easy time finding me and tokkee there. UPDATE: First 120 mugshots are uploaded here. Next mugshot shooting session will be tomorrow - on the 18th of June, during scheduled lunch and dinner.

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. If you want an account to edit something, just drop me a mail.
