The Debian Project has sent out an alert
the effect that several of its systems have been broken into. These include
systems running the bug tracking system, mailing lists, web servers, CVS
server, and some archives. The project claims that the Debian archive
itself has not been affected, but some (in particular the security archive)
are undergoing close inspection before being returned to the net.
Everything should be back by the time you read this, however this page
has been set up to
provide status reports and other pertinent information. Wichert Akkerman
has also provided this overview
progress so far.
The Debian Project has released the
anticipated 'woody' upgrade, officially named Debian GNU/Linux 3.0r2.
This release contains many security fixes and other revisions that
maintainers of stable 'woody' systems should have.
Debian Planet reports progress on the
Debian GNU/NetBSD port, using the GNU C library as a base
instead of NetBSD's libc.
