Bug-Squashing-Party in Munich

We are organizing another BSP in Munich on the weekend of 17th/18th July. Like the last BSP, it will take place in the LiMux office in the city center. See the coordination page for further information and directions and in order to sign up for it.

Food and drinks for the event are partly sponsored by the City of Munich and this amount (100 €) has been again matched by credativ GmbH.

Contributions by non-DDs are welcome as always; the BSP will be attended by several Debian Developers who will be able to upload fixes. Attending BSPs is a great way to get involved in the Debian community!

We cannot guarantee crash space to people from outside Munich at this point, so if you want to attend please contact the Munich list (area-muc@teams.debian.net) beforehand or arrange your own accomodation.

We probably start the BSP at some point after 6PM on Friday evening already, but the main action will be on Saturday and Sunday. As usual, people should bring their notebooks and possibly an ethernet cable. Wireless will be present as well, but a certain bandwidth cannot be guaranteed.

Bug-Squashing Introduction

I also plan to give an introduction to bug-squashing at this month's Garching Debian Stammtisch, which will take place next Wednesday, July 14th in the campus-cneipe (or its beergarden) as usual (the monthly Stammtisch is always on the second Wednesday of the month). If you study/work in Garching and would like to attend the BSP, come to the Stammtisch for a tutorial (and beer)!

Debian Packaging Tutorial

Some time ago, I gave a tutorial on Debian packaging in the TechTalk series of the Open-Source- School. The audience seemed to be pleased with the talk, and as more people requested to attend than there were seats in the room, we decided to reprise the event on September 7th. Attendence is free, but you have to register (see the event page). There are still some places left at this point.

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.
