News for Debian developers

This wiki page collects small news that all developers should know but that are not worth a dedicated mail to debian-devel-announce. Follow the template "Example of news" and add your news below it. If there are some other items already, please sort your item in descending order of importance to the Debian development community. See /Help for more information on how to write entries. 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. Once the mail is sent and archived, please delete the items that were sent, add a link to the archived mail in the Previous news section and mention the mail in ProjectNews.

Example of news

This is a sample news. Copy it and edit the title, content and signature... You can use links like this. Put real news below this sample.

New Debian mailing lists

The Debian listmasters have recently created these new mailing lists:

  • debian-bazel: for discussions related to packaging, using and building with Bazel, a build system created by Google

  • debian-localgroups: for discussions related to local Debian groups, such as co-ordinating between them, organising events and other activities

  • debian-rust: for discussions related to packaging, using and building with Rust, a programming language originally created by Mozilla

Debian bug tracker changes

The Debian bug tracker now supports setting usertags for multiple users at bug submission time. Each Usertags pseudo-header sets the usertags for the last User psuedo-header, or for the bug submitter if there was no earlier User pseudo-header. This is especially useful for setting usertags for a team with multiple users, setting usertags for multiple teams, or setting the architecture usertags for bugs affecting multiple architectures, for example:

User: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: kfreebsd kfreebsd-amd64 kfreebsd-i386
User: debian-hurd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: hurd-i386

The Tags and Usertags pseudo-headers used at bug submission time are now correctly pluralised, so Tag and Usertag will work too in case you use them accidentally.

screenshots.debian.net refurbished

The website that collects screenshots of Debian-packaged applications received an overhaul. It has been providing the image backend for several package managers and packages.debian.org for over 10 years now. Anyone can upload new screenshots anonymously which are then manually approved. If you have an account on Salsa you can now login to screenshots.debian.net as a moderator. You can directly publish your own screenshots, approve anonymously contributed uploads and hide other people's screenshots that you consider inappropriate.

The source code of the web application is also kept on Salsa for fellow Debianistas. There is also a list of (currently 77) open issues with feature requests and improvement suggestions. If you have a suggestion feel free to create an issue there.

If you like numbers: today we have 11,396 screenshots online. And did you know that the idea for the web site came from a Windows sysadmin of a large corporation doing his first steps with Ubuntu?

Debian Developers can now create new Debtags tags

Group Debian was added to the git repository for the Debtags tag vocabulary, and any Debian Developer can now create new tags for Debtags. People who are not Debian Developers are welcome to submit merge requests, which any Debian Developer can now approve.

Pushing to master in that git repository triggers a quick CI job that checks the vocabulary for consistency. If the CI passes, the new tag vocabulary is automatically deployed to debtags.debian.org and becomes immediately visible on the site.

Your Lintian Tags on the Web

Lintian's new website is now live at lintian.debian.net. The service is a bit sluggish while we wait for an upgrade, but hopefully worth the wait. Soon, your uploads will be processed when they arrive, like CI. Please invent something creative with our JSON interface and check back often for new features.

-- Felix Lechner on behalf of the Lintian maintainers

new ia64 porterbox

John Paul Adrian Glaubitz has setup a new ia64 (wiki) porterbox called yttrium. It is available to Debian members and others via SSH to yttrium.debian.net using the SSH keys setup in LDAP. The usual porterbox documentation applies. The machine is an HPE Integrity rx2800 i2 Server with Intel Itanium Processor 9320 @ 1.33 GHz and 24 GB RAM. Thanks go to WILL GmbH&Co.KG for their sponsoring of the machine and its hosting in Dettelbach, Germany.
