Welcome to this year's thirteenth issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian community. Topics covered in this issue include:
Richard Darst posted a
report for DebConf11.
Approximate numbers had been known since last year, but Richard
checked all transactions against SPI and FFIS records to confirm
that, thanks to the support of the Republika Srpska government,
the conference generated a surplus for Debian of around €20,000.
This surplus is expected to be reinvested in future DebConf costs.
Neil McGovern, on behalf of the Release Team, announced that the
will start on 30 June.
That means that no new packages, and no new versions, will automatically migrate to testing
after that point.
Developers can then focus on fixing the last release critical issues in order
to offer everyone a best quality Wheezy stable release once it's ready.
Raphael Geissert widely announced a new
http.debian.net, that aims to reduce
the impact of occasionally offline or out-of-date mirrors,
and to use the worldwide network of mirrors more effectively.
For now this service is unofficial, though Raphael hopes that it might
be used as default in future.
You're welcome to test and use the service by following the
instructions on its website, and send feedback to
Christian Perrier sent a
from the internationalisation (or
that was hosted by IRILL in Paris last weekend.
Seven people attended the meeting, mainly in order to move some
previously unofficial services onto Debian infrastructure,
including the package description translation system.
It was a success — new servers were configured during the sprint, and the actual
services are now migrating to them.
Bernd Zeimetz published a
from the Salzburg bug squashing party that was hosted by
conova communications GmbH
Fifteen to seventeen people from five countries were present,
mainly working on release critical bugs in testing and unstable.
About 68 bugs in unstable and testing were
triaged, patched, fixed, or at least pinged.
Victor Ni?u gave a presentation on the Debian Project, its philosophy and
achievements, and the global and Romanian communities:
A universal project,
with a global community.
This is the first local Debian event in Romania after a year and a half of online presence.
Funda?ia Ceata, a local Free Software
and Free Culture organisation, supported the community by providing the event
location, the after-party, and the new domain name,
Stefano Zacchiroli sent
monthly report on DPL activities.
May saw the
IRC meeting of the Technical Committee, and they plan to set up a
monthly pattern for these meetings, continuing in June.
He mentioned his (failed)
to reach an agreement with the debian-multimedia.org archive maintainers,
and the ongoing
for Scientific Facilities Days conference that is also hosting a
Three people replied to his call for help with DPL tasks, and a
calendar of periodic IRC public meetings will be published soon.
There's still time to apply if you are interested.
Simon Kainz announced the
of a new service, DUCK — the Debian URL
checker, which aims to monitor the Homepage field of packages' control files.
Martin Zobel-Helas sent a request
for comments on a proposed policy change for debian.net, a DNS zone
where Debian Developers can create entries for their projects.

According to the Bugs Search interface of the Ultimate Debian Database, the upcoming release, Debian
Wheezy, is currently affected by 582 Release-Critical bugs. Ignoring bugs which are easily solved or on the way to being solved, roughly speaking, about 376 Release-Critical bugs remain to be solved for the release to happen.
There are also more detailed statistics as well as some hints on how to interpret these numbers.
