ping... Ok, I'm still alive! :o)


FLISOL happened on April 2th in over 100 cities around Latin America. In Curitiba, the event took place on a High School, which is very good, because we could work with teenagers (14-17) to prepare and bring them to Free Software. Yes, kind of: "Come to light side of The Force!" :-)

Back in business

Back to i18n/l10n work on Debian and also trying to reduce my already-big-TODO-list. I'm working on translation and localization effort, specially to put pt_BR up-to-date. And it includes Debian Women website and wiki. I'm playing aroung with dl10n-bot, a perl bot to generate some statistics do l10n teams in Debian. Hope thata I can understand perl a little bit better and implement the HTML feature in a good manner.

I'm also working on Debian Zine a Brazilian eletronic publication about (of course) Debian. We are planning some periodic schedules and resources to make our work easier. I'm also putting as much information as I can about out Debian User Group. After FLISOL we start a lot of ideas and small projects.

In Debian-BR-CDD I'm working on QA trying to check bugs, find more information and close them. Because of that I became interested in help on Debian QA.

At last but not least:

Branden Robinson was elected the new Debian Project Leader, for one year Debian will lead the Project. I hope that Branden could do a great job as Project Leader and, at least for me, there are some special things that I would like to see (and help):
  • Don't let the number of supported arch'es decrease
  • Avoid a dual arch model (first and second class)
  • Bring more consensus on lists, by reducing the number of flamewars
  • More information about how "Debian Works (tm)"
  • Release cycle in the "Best Debian Way (tm)" without taking so long

Good luck Branden! :o)

I would like to thanks lezz that certifies me as Apprentice. And I really hope to come here more often.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
