=== Listing derivatives on the Debian website? ===

We are [[https://lists.debian.org/msgid-search/d516db86-a53c-4a98-1fd8-8f97e4018309@gmail.com|seeking]] feedback about listing derivatives on the Debian website, including if we should list some derivatives, which criteria we should use to select the listed derivatives and how many should be listed. If you have an opinion on this topic, any other suggestions for the [[https://www.debian.org/derivatives/|derivatives page]] or for linking to it from other parts of the website, please reply to the [[https://lists.debian.org/msgid-search/d516db86-a53c-4a98-1fd8-8f97e4018309@gmail.com|thread]] on the [[https://lists.debian.org/debian-project/|debian-project]] mailing list.

=== Future of Debian Live? ===

Steve McIntyre [[https://lists.debian.org/msgid-search/20170626140821.noixwidcadj4rphr@einval.com|is]] questioning if Debian Live has a future and calling for help with testing and developing the Debian Live images. If people do not show up to help, then he will disable building live images altogether and the only option for using Debian will be to install it before using it.

=== Windows viruses in Debian email packages ===

[[https://bugs.debian.org/864800|Sometimes]] upstreams of email related packages include live Windows viruses/malware in their test corpus, either by accident or on purpose, with or without removing infection/transmission mechanisms. Due to the large amount of anti-spam and anti-malware services monitoring the Internet, this can lead to debian.org mirrors getting flagged and reducing the reputation of debian.org in those services as well as source packages getting blocked by the content-scanning firewalls that some networks operate. If your package is email related and includes a test corpus, please scan it for viruses/malware. I've added support to check-all-the-things for doing this using clamdscan or you can run it manually:

clamdscan --fdpass --infected --no-summary

=== Debian bug tracker accessibility tag ===

The Debian bug tracker has added the `a11y` [[https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#tags|tag]] for tracking accessibility issues. Please use it whenever you file an accessibility issue or add it whenever you find an old bug report about an accessibility issue. Debian's accessibility efforts are documented on the [[https://www.debian.org/devel/debian-accessibility/|website]] and the [[https://wiki.debian.org/accessibility-devel|wiki]].

=== Derivatives patches added to the PTS ===

The Debian PTS has added the links to [[http://deriv.debian.net/patches/|patches]] from the Debian derivatives represented in the [[https://wiki.debian.org/Derivatives/Census|derivatives census]]. The patches are [[https://wiki.debian.org/Derivatives/Integration#Patches|generated]] using the sources from the [[http://snapshot.debian.org/|Debian wayback machine]] so as to minimise diffs as much as possible. [[https://bugs.debian.org/779400|Help]] from developers with Python and Django experience is needed to port this work from the PTS to the [[https://tracker.debian.org/|Debian Package Tracker]]. More help with all of Debian's derivative related efforts is needed too, including [[https://lists.debian.org/msgid-search/d516db86-a53c-4a98-1fd8-8f97e4018309@gmail.com|deciding]] which derivatives should be listed on the Debian website.
