=== A link to other distros ===

The Debian package tracker [[https://salsa.debian.org/qa/distro-tracker/commit/894cb4fe7364579fde3b8005215421a1ecab6c82|now]] has an "other distros" link. This brings you to a page containing metadata about how the upstream of the current Debian package has been packaged in other distributions. This page is provided by the [[https://repology.org/|Repology]] service, which monitors a large number of package repositories and other sources. You can use this page to connect with your fellow packagers, view patches available in other distros, look up bugs reported in other distros, find packaging tips/tricks/tweaks/differences, adopt some of these things and or talk to upstream about these things. The Repology service is Free Software and [[https://repology.org/#repos-footnote|monitors packages from]] Linux/BSD distros, third-party Linux/Unix/non-Unix package repos, language-specific package repos, news sites and other sources. Your [[https://qa.debian.org/developer.php|DDPO]] page also links to your [[https://repology.org/maintainers/|Repology maintainers]] page, where you can see outdated versions and URL problems for your packages.

If you have any questions, please ask the publicity team or the Debian English localisation mailing-list.

If you are able to post to debian-devel-announce (all Debian members can) and there are 5 or more items below, you might want to send out the news. To send out a new issue, you can use this helper script to generate the email version of this page. After generating the mail, proof-read it, correct any spelling, formatting or grammatical errors and send out the mail.

The Debian package tracker now has an "other distros" link. This brings you to a page containing metadata about how the upstream of the current Debian package has been packaged in other distributions. This page is provided by the Repology service, which monitors a large number of package repositories and other sources.

Collaborators needed for derivatives census

I'm looking for collaborators on the Debian derivatives census, which aims to integrate derivatives with the Debian community and infrastructure. I'm looking for folks who are not very involved in Debian and would like to increase their involvement. The census involves a mixture of information, social and technical work. I believe the census is valuable to Debian and to derivatives and that it helps build mutually beneficial connections between Debian and the wider community of Free Software distributions.

Lenovo discounts for Debian Developers

Lenovo now offers discounts for any Lenovo equipment for all active Debian Developers, for now in their US and Canada portals (working on getting other geographies up and running).

DDs should register in the portal corresponding to their geographic zone with their @debian.org mail address.

More details in this message (and the corresponding thread) and the "Lenovo+Debian" DebConf20 talk.
