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.

Archive rebuilds as a service

Lucas Nussbaum announced that he is able to run archive rebuilds on a quite regular basis and offers to do them on behalf of others. Archive rebuilds can be useful find FTBFS bugs or to test new versions of compilers, interpreters, or other packages that are common build-depends. If that is useful for you or your team, please get in touch with him. You will need an explanation of why the rebuild test is needed, a script that customizes a chroot and a list of source packages to test-build. There may be a few weeks of waiting, due to gathering several rebuilds into batches.

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. 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 monitors packages from Linux/BSD distros, third-party Linux/Unix/non-Unix package repos, language-specific package repos, news sites and other sources. Your DDPO page also links to your Repology maintainers page, where you can see outdated versions and URL problems for your packages.

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.

New IRC channel: #debian-ai

You might have heard of the new Debian AI Team, the new mailing list being debian-ai, there's now also an IRC channel for your convenience (#debian-ai on OFTC). For the curious here's the QA page with a list of packages already maintained by the team.

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.
