How was the CDD Devcamp

The CDD Devcamp happened in the same time that the II Free Software Congress of the Valencia Community, at Castellón City, Spain. The event, like the Congress, ocurred on May 5th and 6th, 2005 and received people from all important Custom Debian Distributions in the world, besides the people that attend to the event.

In only two days, we could analyze our entire technology of customization that is available inside Debian and discuss the possible ways to solve today's problems.

The main two results of the event are two propostals that are being developed to be discussed during the DebConf5 that will take place in Helsinki, Finland, in July of this year. The proposals aims to solve problems related with distribution updating, customized or not, with relation to configurations changes made by the users in configurations files using, or not, debconf.

Others improvements are also made, specially by the personal contact, it was possible to discuss lots of problems that we have on Debian nowadays and that will be detailed in the near future, possibly during DebConf5.

The event also gives some social results, not only technical ones, with the chance to get everybody involved in the development of Custom Debian Distributions together, with all certain, we will get more collaboration between everybody.
