  • The railway station (Mönchengladbach Hbf) is about 650m away from credativ and easily reachable from Düsseldorf and Cologne. Use exit "Europaplatz" or "Central Bus Station".

    • A map of the way from the railway station to credativ GmbH is available here: Google Maps

    • If you have a Symbian S60 3rd edition phone, you could install the DB RailNavigator and download the necessary timetables to your phone.

    • If you have a Android phone, you could install FahrplanDE app from the market. However it partially needs online access (should be possible to access stored transport connections without an internet connection)
  • Airports near Mönchengladbach:
  • Public transport is provided by Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr


TABLE TO BE SET UP see for instance ?BSP2010/Moenchengladbach/Participants

Bugs, Targets, Ideals


  • Please check if nobody else is working on a bug before you begin hacking!
  • Make sure you use 'bts claim' to claim bugs you want to work on.
  • An overview of claimed bugs is available on here.

  • Also check the bts.turmzimmer.net for comments on the bug status. Add comments there if you have information to add.

  • Use #debian-bugs on the OFTC Network and ?BSP2010/CoordinationTokyoMoenchengladbach if more coordination is needed.

  • Use #debian-release or bugs.d.o (User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org, Usertag: transition) to coordinate library transitions.

Release-critical bugs:


  • Take care of bugs found by piuparts

  • Help the ipv6 release goal by adding ipv6 support to programs which do not support it yet. There is a list of bugs to work on, but don't hesitate to file new ipv6-related bugs if you find them - and fix them!

  • Fix Bugs related to the Python2.6 transition, which should (hopefully!) start before the BSP.

  • Fix Bugs (1, 2) related to Debian GNU/kFreeBSD. Axel Beckert has root access on the porter machines io and asdfasdf and can install build-dependencies where necessary.

  • Find obsolete and unmaintained packages in unstable and file RoQA removal bugs.
  • Squash everything else you don't like (but let the DDs live)
