News! Good News! Great News! \o/

Debconf6 has gone! It was a great time, I leave on the last day, I met lots and lots of people, had the change to learn a lot and had the opportunity to help the DebConf Organization Team. You can see lots of pictures from DebConf6 and here is my mugshot.

I came back from DebConf6 and stopped in São Paulo for the Linux World, to take care of a Debian Booth in the .Org Area. Good time there, met some friends and exchange lots of ideas. It was the first LinuxWorld in Brasil, a really good event, totally different from FISL. I also had the chance to meet the Development Team of Archimedes, a CAD software written in Java.

Great News! My NM process start moving again. After answer some questions from the NM Front Desk, I got a mail from my Applicantion Manager, he asked me about my GPG key to check my identity, explain the next steps and ask me about my biography, Debian and Free Software involvement and plans for the future. I'm really happy! Less than two months after being advocate by otavio I already have an AM, I'm already looking forward for the next steps.

We (the Debian l10n portuguese team) also managed to clean the translation delta for the d-i manual, our goal is to keep it up-to-date. Another goal is to clean the WML (Debian website) translation delta and translate 100% of the strings for all leves of d-i, specially now that we are preparing the last beta release.
We had FLISOL in March. Now we are looking forward for the Debian Day in Brazil (we celebrate the Debian Project Anniversary) and the Software Freedom Day in September. This year is a really busy year, there are other events in the schedule and I hope I can attend the Debian i18n Extremadura Meeting in early september in Spain, we will see. :-)

I'm almost in the end of the semester at University. It will give some extra time to work in Debian and in other related stuff, I need to finish a couple of reports about Debian Booth in Free Software events. I also need to get some things done.

You know... I will try to post more often!

And thanks to lucasr, he certified me as an Apprentice!
