Debian Project News - May 3rd, 2010

Filed under
Linux

Welcome to this year's second issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian community. Topics covered in this issue include:

* New Debian Project Leader
* Special funding for DebConf Newbies
* Debian welcomes Google Summer of Code students
* ... and much more.

New Debian Project Leader

The New Debian Project Leader is named Stefano Zacchiroli (IRC nick zack). Stefano has already posted an email to the Debian Developers Announce mailing list giving out a big thank you, updating his progress in understaning the DPL's job, and letting people know how they can get in touch with him. Stefano hopes to be a 'facilitator' and asks that developers get in touch with him to let him know about 'blockers' that stand in the way of getting work done. We're a very nice do-ocracy, and there is no reason why enthusiastic and capable people willing to work on a specific subject should not be empowered to do so.

While he's on IRC (irc.debian.org) Stefano states the preferred way of getting in touch with him is via leader@debian.org. He finishes his email with; Now let's go and squash some RC bug, Squeeze is getting closer and closer, and I've already wasted enough of your time!
