  • Les projets ont leurs propres en-têtes et les tâches sont listées comme des points entre chaque projet.
  • Les éléments de la liste sont divisés en objectifs à Court/Moyen/Long term et les éléments activables sont classés parmi une des six priorités suivantes: Facile/Urgent, Facile/Important, Facile/Wishlist, Complexe/Urgent, Complexe/Important, Complexe/Wishlist.

    • N'importe quel élément Facile implique une courte période de temps pour le résoudre (quelquechose entre quelques minutes à une heure) et a une solution facile.

    • Le reste est classé Complexe.

    • Les éléments Urgent doivent être traités rapidement.

    • Les éléments Important doivent être réglés mais pas forcément rapidement.

    • Les éléments de la Wishlist doivent être adaptés mais le monde ne doit pas s'écrouler s'ils ne sont pas réglés.

  • Merci de faire un lien vers Debian bug#s pour les éléments qui le nécéssitent.
  • Indiquer brièvement dans un sous-élément la tâche sur laquelle vous être en train de travailler et ce que vous faîtes.
  • LEs tâches plus complexes qui nécéssitent plus d'explications doivent avoir leur propre sous-page en dessous de cette page-ci mais ne doit pas être un subterfuge pour repousser la date de résolution du bug..
  • Merci d'indiquer les dépendances entre les tâches en utilisant les ancres et les liens.

Make ACPI work natively in Debian

  • Short term: using eeepc-acpi-scripts package
  • Long term: Help Asus merge ACPI upstream
    • asus-acpi (and therefore eeepc-acpi which is a fork) are deprecated; work with the asus-laptop maintainer to merge patches for the Eee

Improve installer for Eee

  • Short term: make custom d-i installer

    • Hard/Urgent: Post instructions in wiki for rebuilding d-i installer for the Eee, i.e. ../HowTo/CustomInstaller

    • Easy/Urgent: UTF-8 problem screws up the line-drawing characters making navigation through menus difficult

    • Easy/Important: No accessibility support included

    • Hard/Wishlist: No install over wireless possible

    • Incorporate steps documented in ../HowTo/Install

      • Wireless
      • Camera
      • ACPI (hotkeys)
      • Misc. conf fixes, workarounds
        • won't shutdown
        • silence hdd errors
  • Long term: support Eee in d-i natively

    • ensure kernel & related packages support Eee natively so that standard d-i installer supports Eee without modification)

  • Long term: make a combination live image / installer image


  • Short term: fork madwifi package and make available in an unofficial Debian repository
    • Replace the repacked image linked from the install howto with a properly packaged and versioned one built from source
  • Mid term: assist with or at least track progress of madwifi merging the support for the Eee's chipset upstream
  • Long term: ath5k
    • This is the only viable solution for support in Debian proper as ath5k is DFSG free whereas madwifi is not nor will it ever be.
    • We need someone to look into this. Is anyone working on this? Is there an upstream bug#? Does anyone have the expertise to help add support themselves?

Project management

  • Make regular passes through all wiki pages to keep up to date (don't be afraid to prune out outdated/redundant material ... the wiki revision system keeps old copies)
  • Check forum.eeeuser.com, wiki.eeeuser.com, etc. to glean from the collected wisdom of the broader Eee community things that will help us
  • Use our git repository for group maintained packages.
  • Easy/Important: Change atl2 to group-maintained on next upload.


  • Hard/Wishlist: Find a sane solution for OSD display

  • Hard/Important: Write a script to disable/enable external monitor (xrandr?)

  • Easy/Important: change actions/hotkey.sh to use #!/bin/bash since it uses bashisms

  • Keep changes in this package to a minimum and rely as much as possible on existing solutions in Debian. That is, the Eee is no different from other laptops in its need for the things the package provides, so custom Eee solutions should only be made to accomodate for the differences between the Eee hardware and other hardware. Also, upstream solutions are better and preferred over changes made here. So where possible, file bugs upstream (kernel & modules such as the asus-laptop module).
