Joerg Jaspert reports
that amd64 packages
are in unstable and will soon move to testing. "As inclusion of
AMD64 in Debian is now at a point where unstable nearly has all packages
built we are at the point to move on with this archive.
Marc 'HE' Brockschmidt takes a look at New
Maintainer reform. "Problems with the New Maintainer process have
been a regular topic on Debian mailing lists in the past few months. As I'm
both interested in not reading more flamewars and actually improving
things, I've summarized my experiences and tried to come up with something
that is perhaps able to fix most of the problems. Please note that this is
my opinion, not something decided by the NM team."
Wouter Verhelst presents some bits from the
experimental autobuilder team. "As many of you undoubtedly know,
experimental is autobuilt these days. Experimental is a bit of a special
case in Debian's distributions, which means that our experimental
autobuilders act slightly differently from those of unstable,
stable-security, and others."
Raphael Hertzog has announced the Debian
Python Modules Team and issued an invitation for all maintainers of python
modules to join. Python 2.4 will soon be the default, so the goal is to
update all packages that currently depend on older versions.
