To infinity, and beyond! -- Buzz

[Debian]
I should write about this a few days ago but didn't have the time. Sorry. Well, these are great news (at least for me), a few days ago I sent the second part of my T&S and already got approved. My AM (Hi Clément) also pointed out a few changes that were needed in my packages that are already fixed and uploaded; Clément already sent the report and considering that, I'm now waiting for the Front Desk to review my application (and after that, DAMnation. I'm happy! I also finish the adoption of xless and levee. I still have to finish the MyPasswordSafe adoption, but before I have to fix a RC bug related to the use of sudo as the gain-root command (instead of fakeroot) in the alpha buildd. Thanks neuro that already give me a few tips on how to solve it.

Following the random ideas season:
  • Next week, Extremadura will host the i18n Debian people, the idea is to discuss lots of ideas, specially i18n Infrastructure, but not only discuss, also code a lot!

  • I do not like the idea to have sourceless firmware in main and I really like Don Armstrong proposal on that subject.

  • I still have to finish the desproxy, tuxfrw and thumbs packaging work to get it in time for etch.

  • I'm wondering how a tally sheet with more than 10 choices looks like


[Anti-SPAM season]
Like a lot of people already did, in the last two weeks I've been fighting SPAM in my company and also on the server of Free Software Projects that I'm part of the System Administration Team. In most cases I'm using postfix with clamscan and postgrey, but I will switch to amavisd-new to use SpamAssassin (with razor/pyzor). But I'm still studying the various alternatives in a Debian Sarge system.


Hey silva, thank you! (Journeyer certification).
