Debian-news is about one simple thing - news about Debian GNU/Linux and the top free distributions based on Debian GNU/Linux.


FOSDEM 2011, second CfT

At the end of September, I called for talk submissions for the FOSDEM 2011 distributions miniconf. Unfortunately, to date, the number of
submissions (from Debian and other distributions alike) has been
abysmally low. It would be a shame if the two rooms which the miniconf was assigned for two days would be mostly unused.

Therefore, I’d like to reiterate my request for talks. Anything is
welcome, as long as it involves distribution work.

If I may make some suggestions for interesting talk proposals that would
fit the miniconf well:
– Our new kFreeBSD port
– Something about the new v3 source formats
– Piuparts, the PTS, buildd, popcon, the website and webwml, or anything
about any other piece of infrastructure,
– A round table about strategies for something which every distribution
must do, such as releasing, squashing bugs, compiling software, or,
heck, marketing,

– last but not least, if all else fails, we can just flood the
distributions miniconf with Debian-specific talks and hope that nobody
notices if the “distributions” miniconf has turned into the Debian
Devroom(s!), v2.

(Just kidding on that last one, of course, even if talks about
distribution-specific subject matters are welcome at any rate)

Second, though this hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, I’ve asked for
a Debian booth again. Volunteers to help with that are most certainly
