Hmmm... looks like that I'm finally being able to maintain updates on a "two week" basis! Good! :-)

I sent bulk-mailer to one of my sponsors (Otavio Salvador) and now the package is sitted waiting for approval. Nowadays, NEW-queue processing is pretty fast, it could take a couple of weeks, but I'm happy that Otavio already approved it. I also prepared a new version of lifelines (3.0.50) and sent it to bubulle (Christian Perrier), finally I sent the "since package" to finally adopt the package from Luk Claes (and he is going to sponsor me for this package).

On the debian-l10n-portuguese field we are working hard to get translations and translators using pseudo-urls and discussing around the list. Which is very good, since we have a huge amount of work.

[Random Misc Stuff]
Another thing that I did in the last days was sign and send GPG signatures from OLS2005 KeySigning Party, thanks to the signing-party package and its really cool caff, 45 keys signed and sent much faster. The other thing is the preparation for the FLISOL 2006, a very big InstallFest, that happens simultaneously in over 10 countries (last year we had more then 100 cities).

I couldn't forget to talk about this: I played with Xen 3.0!!! I'm on a team of sys/net admin volunteers to take care of some free software project's server. We are finishing a migration and the new structure is using Xen 3.0 that is a very interesting technology. Not just because of the technology itself, but because I also remember some nice days that I spent in 2005 attending Ottawa Linux Symposium.

Things were shaked once again in the "Cathedral Labs field"... sounds like that I was not that wrong in the first place when I did the first post writing about the fact that maybe it is time to move on. It is too early to say something... but let's try a new approach, perhaps we can found a good solution! Hope it works. :o)
