 119 <abstract>For three years, Libre Graphics magazine has existed with the explicit intent of producing a print magazine. In this presentation, we explore the issues and opportunities of physical F/LOSS production. From funding, to raw materials, we discuss the process of attempting to decentralize an object.
 121 Libre Graphics magazine (ISSN 1925-1416) is a print publication devoted to showcasing and promoting work created with Free/Libre Open Source Software. Since 2010, we have been publishing work about or including artistic practices which integrate Free, Libre and Open software, standards, culture, methods and licenses.
 123 Ana Isabel is a co-editor and designer of the Libre Graphics magazine, a print publication produced exclusively with Free Software and released under a Creative Commons license.</abstract>

 165 <abstract>This will be a workshop about learning how to help teams by triaging bugs. You don't need to code or even be a sysadmin to help, you just need to read and send emails! We'll use UDD to identify old, dusty bugs, and learn the strange language of We'll see when to ping bug submitters, the different tags that can be added or removed, and best of all: how to close outdated bugs :)

 187 <abstract>At the core of every Operating System, lays a packaging system. Packages allow us to install and uninstall software, to handle dependencies, to set up our applications for us, they provide a safe initial configuration, signatures and checksums to make sure that what we're installing is what we want to install. deb files are the most characteristic feature of all Debian systems and it derivatives. What is exactly a package? What's inside a deb? What can a Debian Package or a Debian Repository do for you? In this talk, we will try to take a look into the insides of a package and find out how do the pre and post scripts work, how are dependencies handled, how are signatures and checksums managed and how a package configuration can be customized via debconf. </abstract>

 317 <title>Version Tracking and Stable Release Critical Bug Squashing</title>
 318 <subtitle/>
 319 <track>Conference</track>
 320 <type>lecture</type>
 321 <language>EN</language>
 322 <abstract>The Debian Bug Tracking System (BTS) is one of the most important services of the Debian Project. It's public, everyone can look up issues and is able and invited to interact and work with it.
 324 To be able to track bugs for the different releases is done through a thing called version tracking. And while it's in place since quite a while, there still seem to be some misunderstandings every now and then how it is supposed to work. This especially shows up in the list of outstanding bugreports which are considered to be Release Critical for the current (and old) stable release(s).
 326 This talk tries to shine a light on these fineprints and help people to track down real release critical bugreports for our supported stable releases by weeding out those who aren't real. </abstract>
