=== The Debian Janitor ===

The [Debian Janitor](https://jelmer.uk/debian-janitor.html) is a new bot that automatically creates merge proposals fixing minor issues in Debian packages that are maintained in Git.

The bot is designed to be conservative and delight with consistently correct fixes instead of proposing possibly incorrect fixes and hoping for the best. It is currently being rolled out gradually.

For more information, see its [FAQ](https://janitor.debian.net/lintian-fixes/#faq).

FreedomBox looking for contributors

FreedomBox - a Debian pure blend server OS designed to be user-friendly and privacy-oriented - is looking for new contributors! In April 2019, we launched a commercial FreedomBox product with Olimex. And it went so well that we have an influx in requests for new software features. To respond to this feedback, we need more developers! Though we can currently handle urgent development matters, FreedomBox has many wish-list items which our small team can't always make time for. We need help from our friends in Debian!

Although there are only a few bugs open in BTS, there are over 300 listed in the Salsa issue tracker. It may be useful to look in one of the beginner, Help Wanted or ready for implementation labels.

Another place to find clearly-defined tasks is the "Contributor Invites" category on our forum, which is targeted at new contributors.

If you have any questions about an issue, feel free to comment on it, or discuss with us on #freedombox-dev. We also discuss development ideas on our forum in the "Development" category.
