The [[https://jelmer.uk/debian-janitor.html|Debian Janitor]] is a new bot that automatically creates merge proposals fixing minor issues in Debian packages that are maintained in Git. Thanks to Dmitry Shachnev's work Qt packages now offer two OpenGL flavours, Desktop and ES [1].
This changes are provided by Qt GUI and Qt Quick libraries. With the help of the Release Team
the necessary packages in the archive have been rebuilt in order to pick up the changes. Desktop
and ES packages are not co-installable as they provide the same set of shared libraries. So most
packages now have an alternative dependency like
Line 24: Line 28:
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.   libqt5gui5 (>= 5.x) | libqt5gui5-gles (>= 5.x).

For more information, see its [[https://janitor.debian.net/lintian-fixes/#faq|FAQ]]. Packages get such a dependency automatically if they are using ${shlibs:Depends}. More details
are available in Dmitry's blog post [1].

=== FreedomBox looking for contributors === -- Lisandro Damián Nicanor Pérez Meyer
Line 32: Line 37:
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 [[https://salsa.debian.org/freedombox-team/plinth/issues|issue tracker]]. It may be useful to look in one of the
[[https://salsa.debian.org/freedombox-team/plinth/issues?label_name%5B%5D=beginner|beginner]],
[[https://salsa.debian.org/freedombox-team/plinth/issues?label_name%5B%5D=Help+Wanted|Help Wanted]] or
[[https://salsa.debian.org/freedombox-team/plinth/issues?label_name%5B%5D=ready+for+implementation|ready for implementation]]
labels.

Another place to find clearly-defined tasks is the [[https://discuss.freedombox.org/c/contributor-invites|"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 [[https://discuss.freedombox.org/c/development|"Development" category]].

Qt packages built with OpenGL ES support are now available

Thanks to Dmitry Shachnev's work Qt packages now offer two OpenGL flavours, Desktop and ES [1]. This changes are provided by Qt GUI and Qt Quick libraries. With the help of the Release Team the necessary packages in the archive have been rebuilt in order to pick up the changes. Desktop and ES packages are not co-installable as they provide the same set of shared libraries. So most packages now have an alternative dependency like

  • libqt5gui5 (>= 5.x) | libqt5gui5-gles (>= 5.x).

Packages get such a dependency automatically if they are using ${shlibs:Depends}. More details are available in Dmitry's blog post [1].
