Participate in "Wheezy" BSP marathon

Linux

The Debian Project is pleased to announce that in the next few weeks Bug Squashing Parties (BSPs) will take place in several countries. The main focus of a Bug Squashing Party is to triage and fix bugs, but it is also an opportunity for users less familiar with the BTS to make other contributions to the Debian project, such as translating package descriptions or improving the wiki. Debian developers will be present to help contributors understand how the project works and to help get fixes into Debian.

Below is a list of upcoming Bug Squashing Parties; don't forget to regularly check our events page to find more.

Linux 4.9-rc8

So if anybody has been following the git tree, it should come as no surprise that I ended up doing an rc8 after all: things haven't been bad, but it also hasn't been the complete quiet that would have made me go "no point in doing another week". Extra kudos to Arnd, who actually root-caused the incredibly annoying "modversions do not work with new versions of binutils", bisecting it to a particular change to symbol handling in binutils, and then adding a small one-liner patch to the kernel to work around the issue. We already had other workarounds in place, but it's always good to know exactly what in the tool chain changed to cause things like this.
