Just came back from CONISLI (www.conisli.org.br), an International Software Libre event. I met jahnke there and other people I've already met and made some new friends. Watch the talk made by Georg Greeve from FSF Europe. We had the opportunity to make some discussion about Debian-BR-CDD update. People want a more end-user-friendly interface to install new software. I was in favour of a Debian way of doing it, instead of making a new and centralized application. My proposal was of extending control files with a new field and new sections, besides an icon identifying the package in every one of them, with one default icon identifying some section, when it is not provided (for libs and devels software, mainly). That way, every maintainer would do its job, instead of having a CDD team doing it for every package. Let's see where it goes.
