Debian: MiniDebConfOnline 2020, BTS and Cinnamon 4.6 for Debian GNU/Linux

Filed under
Debian
  • MiniDebConfOnline 2020 - I'm a programmer, how can I help Debian
  • developer-reference challenge: get the bug count down to 0

    As of now, the BTS counts 52 bugs for src:developers-reference and I'd like to get this down to zero, because src:developers-reference is just documenting best practices and this should be easy and done well.

    So, I've been trying to keep the habit of fixing at least one bug per month and I also try to do one upload per month. And I very much welcome your patches, commits, MRs and bug reports, because else it will take more than 5 years. Though I'm hopeful, src:developers-reference is maintained by the debian group on salsa, which is like a thousand people.

  • Cinnamon 4.6 for Debian

    After a few rounds of testing in experimental, I have uploaded Cinnamon 4.6 packages to Debian/unstable. Nothing spectacular new besides the usual stream of fixes. Enjoy the new Cinnamon!

KF6 Progress Report: Almost Bastille Day (July) Edition

So the world has been hectic lately, dunno if you’ve seen the news, but that means that I didn’t publish an update since my previous KF6 progress report back in February! Now that the lock down has been (temporarily?) lifted where I live and that things are a bit less crazy, it’s time for an update. An actual Qt 6 is not published yet and we didn’t branch for KF6 yet either. Still as can be seen on the KF6 Workboard there are plenty of tasks in our backlog which can be acted upon now. No need to wait to participate, all the work done now will make the transition to KF6 easier later on anyway. What has been done since the last post? On the workboard, we currently have 22 tasks in progress and 4 tasks done. Clearly that’s not a huge activity in more than four months but the state of the world might explain it in part. Obviously with so little tasks done, they mostly revolve around our usual suspects. If you fancy becoming one of the unsung heroes of KDE, come and help working tasks from the KF6 Workboard! More hands are needed and right now is a good time to discover it and get into it than when Qt6 will be released. Indeed, when Qt6 will be around it will be much less quiet around here. :-) Read more
