PTS news: accessibility, piuparts, l10n
—————————————

A handful of changes have been flowing into the PTS
(http://packages.qa.debian.org) during DebConf9:

* the PTS page layout have been re-designed, mainly behind the scenes:
it no longer uses tables and should be more accessible. As a minor
drawback, alternative CSS stylesheets beyond the default one are
currently broken
* the PTS now shows errors about package installation stressing found by
piuparts (see http://piuparts.debian.org for more info)
* the PTS now shows information about the translation status of a
package and warns when Debian-specific strings (e.g. debconf
templates) need translations

cvs.debian.org (and its webwml repo) moved to Alioth
—————————————————-

cvs.debian.org has been moved away from gluck.debian.org, its new home is
alioth.debian.org with all the other version control system. This
concerns mainly committers to the webwml repository (the website) since
the associated SSH host key has changed and the password to use is the
alioth’s one (and not the one from Debian’s official LDAP).

Git user’s survey 2009
———————-

The Git User’s Survey 2009[1] is up! If you care about improving Git so
that it better suits your needs for your Debian work, please take a few
minutes to answer it. The survey will last until 15th september 2009.

New source formats
——————

A status update concerning the switch to new source formats has been sent
to dedian-devel[2]. Test source packages (and an associated APT
repository) are available. The main blocker is the merge of the branch
that adds support of new source formats to dak. Check out the message for
more details on what has been done and what’s planned.
