Joerg Jaspert explains
what he has been
doing with the NEW queue. "NEW checking is about three things. In
order of priority: trying to keep the archive legal, trying to keep the
package namespace sane, and trying to reduce the number of bugs in Debian.
Not all QA issues will be noticed; we don't test packages, but we do look
through them and note problems that jump out at us. Sometimes that'll
result in a bug, sometimes it will result in an email, sometimes it will
result in a REJECT, depending on how serious the issue seems.
Andreas Barth looks at the status of various package transition efforts. "we currently have a couple (or rather: way too many)
transitions already ongoing. Please, don't upload shlib bumps or lib
renamings unless required by one of these transitions."
There is now a Debian GNU/kFreeBSD i386 machine available to Debian developers. "The
machine name is "io.debian.net". It was kindly donated by Aurelien Jarno
and is hosted by "ETH Zurich, Department of Physics". We wish to thank
them for their contribution to the GNU/kFreeBSD development."
The next Bug Squashing Party will be held
September 2 - 4, 2005. "Coordination will happen over IRC channel
#debian-bugs on irc.debian.org as usual."
Here are some Results of the meeting in
