Hi, Here is my monthly report for July 2013 (+ the beginning of August).
That was a rather slower month, with some travel (for work) and some
- Survey of new contributors
- ITWire interview
- Logo registration as a trademark
- Debian representatives on the GNOME Advisory Board
- Follow-up: call for help: Debian Auditors
- Reminder: sprints!
- Day-to-day log
Survey of new contributors
As initially mentioned in , I surveyed new contributors (people who just had
their first package accepted in Debian). A summary of results is available at
. The raw answers are available to Debian Developers. (just ask me)
I answered an interview for ITWire. A spanish translation is
available, made by Grupo de Software Libre de Cúcuta.
Logo registration as a trademark
Following previous work on this topic [1,2], our trademark team worked
very hard and forwarded everything needed (or at least we hope so!) to
register the Debian logo as a US trademark to our legal counsel,
Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC).
has been delegated as a GSOC admin, as
he became a DD recently. The list of delegations has been updated
on our website.
Debian representatives on the GNOME Advisory Board
Sebastian Dröge and Michael Biebl have agreed to represent
Debian in the GNOME Advisory Board.
Follow-up: call for help: Debian Auditors
Two volunteers (Christopher Browne and Brian Gupta) answered the
call for help, and are going to be mentored by our current auditors
(Martin Michlmayr and Martin Wuertele). Thanks!
- Approved shipping of console servers bought last year
($80 + 32€ for german customs)
- Approved purchase of remotely-managed PDU (110€)
and cables for the console server (40€)
As usual, my day-to-day log of DPL activities is
available on master:/srv/leader/news/bits-from-the-DPL.txt.201307
It’s possible and easy to organize a sprint for your team.
