The Debian listmasters have recently created these new mailing lists: The Python world has developed new standards for building and distributing modules. You'll often see a pyproject.toml file instead of a setup.py that you used to get. pybuild now has support for building these packages with the pyproject plugin. Build-Depend on `pybuild-plugin-pyproject` to use it.

Line 32: Line 31:
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 [[https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Debbugs/ArchitectureTags|architecture usertags]] for bugs affecting multiple architectures, for example: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEvents/de/2022/DebianReunionHamburg

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. === New Debian mailing list: debian-math ===

=== screenshots.debian.net refurbished ===

The [[https://screenshots.debian.net|website that collects screenshots]] of Debian-packaged applications received an overhaul. It has been providing the image backend for several package managers and [[https://packages.debian.org/|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 [[https://salsa.debian.org/|Salsa]] you can now [[https://screenshots.debian.net/users/sign_in|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 [[https://salsa.debian.org/debian/debshots|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 ===

[[https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2021/04/msg00059.html|Group Debian was added]] to the git repository for the [[https://salsa.debian.org/debtags-team/debtags-vocabulary|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 [[https://lintian.debian.net|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 [[https://lintian.debian.net/query|JSON interface]] and check back often for new features.

=== new ia64 porterbox ===

John Paul Adrian Glaubitz has setup a new [[https://www.debian.org/ports/ia64/|ia64]] ([[https://wiki.debian.org/Ports/ia64|wiki]]) porterbox called [[https://db.debian.org/machines.cgi?host=yttrium|yttrium]]. It is available to Debian members and [[https://dsa.debian.org/doc/guest-account/|others]] via SSH to yttrium.debian.net using the SSH keys [[https://db.debian.org/doc-mail.html|setup in LDAP]]. The usual [[https://dsa.debian.org/doc/schroot/|porterbox]] [[https://wiki.debian.org/PorterBoxHowToUse|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 [[http://www.will.de/|WILL GmbH&Co.KG]] for their sponsoring of the machine and its hosting in Dettelbach, Germany.
