Debian Weekly News – November 28th, 2006
—————————————————————————

Welcome to this year's 41st issue of DWN, the newsletter for the
Debian community. Due to unfortunate [1]circumstances the weekly
newsletter stopped being released weekly and will only be
[2]finalised when enough people have contributed. Thanks to Sebastian
Feltel for nearly writing this issue alone. Bill Allombert [3]began
to evaluate package set upgrades from [4]sarge to [5]etch to find
out how smooth the upgrade goes.

GNOME 2.14 in Etch. Jordi Mallach [6]announced that the [7]Debian
GNOME team has decided to ship [8]GNOME 2.14 with the upcoming
[9]etch release. Due to several problems with the latest version 2.16
they prefer the stabilised and well tested version 2.14 to be shipped
with etch rather than an relative new GNOME 2.16 for which backports
shall be provided.

Debian Conference 7. Moray Allan [10]announced that the next
[11]DebConf will take place from June 17th to June 23rd in Edinburgh,
United Kingdom. Just before the conference there will be a [12]DebCamp
starting on the 10th of June where Debian developers are invited to
work together on several Debian-related projects. On the 16th of June
a [13]DebianDay is scheduled which is mainly targeted at the Debian
users. All people whether Debian developers or Debian users are
welcome to attend.

First Debian Installer Release Candidate. Frans Pop [14]announced the
first release candidate of the [15]debian-installer for [16]etch.
After a long time of development this release candidate includes a lot
of improvements like installing onto encrypted LVM partitions, a
[17]graphical GTK-based installation method and partition resizing. It
is based on the Linux kernel 2.6.17. A second release candidate is
planned which will use Linux 2.6.18, the default kernel for etch.

DebConf Registration and Call for Papers. Moray Allan [18]announced
the registration phase for the upcoming [19]Debian Conference, which
will be take place Edinburgh, UK. He also asked for submission of
proposals for papers, presentations, discussion sessions and tutorials
until January 31st. There is a web interface for [20]attendees and for
submitting proposals.

Etch Release Update. Steve Langasek [21]stated that the stabilisation
phase of [22]etch is about three months behind former expectations and
due to this fact the prospected release date of December, 4th could
not be met anymore. Apart from that the distribution is in good shape,
almost all release goals are met or in the process of being met and
the number of release critical [23]bugs is continuously going down.

Help with the Debian FAQ. Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña [24]called
for help with the release by improving our documentation by helping to
update the Debian GNU/Linux [25]FAQ. Some content is available in the
[26]Wiki but still has to be reviewed and rewritten for the FAQ. He
asked the maintainers to take a look at the current version, check if
frequently asked questions of users are included and submit bug
reports if they are not.

New Sparc Development Machine. Martin Michlmayr [27]reported that Sun
has donated a new Sun Fire T2000 to the Debian project. The machine
will be used for the [28]sparc port and consists of 8 UltraSparc T1
processor cores, 32 GB of RAM and two 70 GB hard disks. The machine is
not in the debian.org domain to give external people access to it.
Developers who want to have access to it should contact Bastian Blank.
The Debian project would like to take the opportunity to thank Sun for
the donation.

New Debian Archive Signing Key. For the upcoming release of [29]etch a
new GnuPG [30]key has been created. This is the first Debian release
supporting [31]Secure APT so that users are able to verify the
authenticity of Debian packages prior to installing them on their
machines. The Wiki page explains how to import the new signing key and
provides an overview about the functionality of Secure APT.
