  • [GSOC] Final report

    I’ve had the great opportunity to go to the Debian Conference 2016. I’ve been introduced to the debian community and debian developpers (“dd” in short Tongue). I was lucky to meet with great people like the president of the FSF, John Sulivan. You can have a look at my Debian conference report here.

  • Debian/TeX Live 2016.20160819-1

    A new – and unplanned – release in quick succession. I have uploaded testing packages to experimental which incorporate tex4ht into the TeX Live packages, but somehow the tex4ht transitional updated slipped into sid, and made many packages uninstallable. Well, so after a bit more testing let’s ship the beast to sid, meaning that tex4ht will finally updated from the last 2009 version to what is the current status in TeX Live.

  • Defcon24

    I went to Defcon24 as Purism representative. It was (as usual) held in Las Vegas, the city of sin. In the same module as with DebConf, here we go with good, bad and ugly.

  • No MariaDB MaxScale in Debian
  • DebConf16 - new age in Debian community gathering

    Finally got some time to write this blog post. DebConf for me is always something special, a family gathering of weird combination of geeks (or is weird a default geek state?). To be honest, I finally can compare Debian as hacker conference to other so-called hacker conferences. With that hat on, I can say that Debian is by far the most organized and highest quality conference. Maybe I am biased, but I don't care too much about that. I simply love Debian and that is no secret. So lets dive into my view on DebConf16 which was held in Cape Town, South Africa.

  • Debian GNU/Linux Operating System Turns 23, Happy Birthday!

    The Debian Project, through Laura Arjona Reina, has had the great pleasure of announcing that today, August 16, 2016, is Debian GNU/Linux operating system's 23rd anniversary.
