For now, Dunc-Tank is proceeding with its plans, thanks to initial donations from Hewlett-Packard and Xandros. Stephen E. Harris, vice president communications at Xandros, says, “Our primary aims are to assure timely Debian release and to give something back to the community to which we are deeply indebted.”
As a result of these donations, Steve Langasek, one of the release managers, began a month of full-time work on the next release on October 12. Langasek plans to keep a record of his progress on his blog. Andreas Barth, the other release manager, will begin his month of full-time employment next month. Towns states that each will receive $6,000 for their work.
