– Reminder: sprints!
– Day-to-day log
Survey of new contributors
As initially mentioned in , I surveyed new contributors (people who just had
their first package accepted in Debian). A summary of results is available at
. The raw answers are available to Debian Developers. (just ask me)
I answered an interview for ITWire. A spanish translation is
available, made by Grupo de Software Libre de Cúcuta.
Logo registration as a trademark
Following previous work on this topic [1,2], our trademark team worked
very hard and forwarded everything needed (or at least we hope so!) to
register the Debian logo as a US trademark to our legal counsel,
Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC).
he became a DD recently. The list of delegations has been updated
on our website.

Follow-up: call for help: Debian Auditors
Two volunteers (Christopher Browne and Brian Gupta) answered the
call for help, and are going to be mentored by our current auditors
(Martin Michlmayr and Martin Wuertele). Thanks!

($80 + 32€ for german customs)

and cables for the console server (40€)
As usual, my day-to-day log of DPL activities is
available on master:/srv/leader/news/bits-from-the-DPL.txt.201307
It’s possible and easy to organize a sprint for your team.
