• The Backports Team is pleased to announce the availability of a new suite on backports: lenny-backports-sloppy.
Proposed timeline of the Release Team
We hope to have sorted out all the details and resolved the remaining blockers by the end of October, with the focus during November being on translation updates, testing and coordination with different teams to prepare the new release.
This means that it’s possible to have a release out in time for Christmas, but to do this we need YOUR help. Please, squash bugs, write release notes, squash bugs, support our translators and squash some bugs.
  • To make the Debian Mentors List more friendly, supportive and helpful, Asheesh Laroia and Niels Thykier¬†promised they will reply to every email within four days, even if the replies aren’t a sponsorship or necessarily a review.
