Hi! About piuparts: piuparts  tests that .deb packages (as used by Debian) handle installation, upgrading, and removal correctly. http://piuparts.debian.org runs it on whole main Debian archive.
Hi! Given I’m determined to keep a monthly cadence of DPL “bits”, I thought it would be a good idea to try to send them near the beginning of each month, even if that meant sending first bits that only cover my first 13 days as the Debian Project Leader.
Hi, in this bits: 1. Ongoing discussion about DebTags 2. Blends metainformation in UDD and potential use in PTS 3. Talks about Blends 4. Sponsoring of Blends packages 5. GSoC projects 6. Blends Metapackages in Wheezy 7. What can you do for the Wheezy user experience right now

Dear Project Members,”Now that I have your attention, I would like to make the following delegations:” … nah, scrap that. In my last day in office I first of all owe you a report of DPL activities for the last reporting period of this term, i.e. March 8th until today. Here it is!

[ insert here: "I've been to FOSDEM", "I got a nasty flu", and other $lame_excuses for the delay in sending out this report ] Dear Project Members, here’s the monthly DPL activity report, this time for January 2013.
February 10th, 2013 by cj2003
Dear Project Members, here is another (delayed) monthly report of DPL activities, this time for November 2012.

Dear Project Members, another month, another periodic report of DPL-ish activities, this time for October 2012.

Tip to feel good about the release #476: *before* reading this, grab and fix one of the [RC bugs affecting Wheezy]. Done? Now you’re ready for a slightly less exciting report of DPL activities.

Howdy from DebConf12. It’s hot, but it’s also time to bother you again with a (not so) brief DPL activity report, this time for June 2012.
Hi, We know no-one likes reading long mails on d-d-a, so we’ll keep this short: we’ll be stopping automatic migrations of packages from unstable to testing – aka freezing – on June 30th.
June 24th, 2012 by cj2003
Dear project members, here’s the periodic report of what has happened in DPL land, this time during May 2012. It’s briefer than usual, as this year I’ve enjoyed the lovely French habit of frequent holidays during the month of May.
June 10th, 2012 by cj2003
Dear project members, last bits of the past DPL term and first bits of the current term, all in one. Here is a report of what has happened in DPL land last April.
Dear project members, here is my monthly DPL activity report, this time for last March. It is delayed by a couple of weeks because, myself being both incumbent and candidate DPL, I preferred not to use d-d-a during the voting period unless really needed. Apologies for the delay (or the unneeded paranoia, you name it).

Dear Developers or, better, Dear Project Members (see below), I swear I won’t rejoice ever again of a calm month such as September!
November 12th, 2011 by cj2003
Dear Developers, given that they managed to survive the training period started at DebConf11, I’m happy to announce that the Debian System Administration (DSA) team has now two new full members: Faidon Liambotis and Tollef Fog Heen.

September has been a relatively quiet month in DPL-land. I guess most people from the northern hemisphere were bracing for the impact of the end of vacations (myself included) and didn’t have time bothering me. Good! Below you can find a report of what has happened in DPL land during the last month.
