Bits from the Release Team
--------------------------

Release manager Adam D. Barratt sent Bits from the release team [9], in
which he welcomes Mehdi Dogguy to the team. Other enthusiastic Debian
Developers who are interested are invited to contact the team [10].

9 : http://lists.debian.org/1276539279.17274.84.camel@kaa.jungle.aubergine.m...
10 : mailto:debian-release@lists.debian.org

Lots of transitions are finished, and in order to make the boot process
faster, parallel booting should be enabled by default [11]. "Squeeze"
will release with GNOME 2.30 along with the already transitioned KDE
4.4.3. With EGLIBC 2.11 already in "testing" , Python 2.6 and Perl 5.12
(among a few others) should be able to transition before the freeze.

11 : http://lists.debian.org/E1OFQyk-0003Vs-Hw@login1.uio.no

As announced earlier, new transitions are in freeze [12] in order to
make it easier to finish current and already scheduled transitions.
"Squeeze" will be frozen when Python 2.6 and the other transitions are
completed, maybe during late August if everybody works together.

Call for volunteers for DebConf10
---------------------------------

Gabriella Coleman sent out a call for volunteers for DebConf10 [13] on
her blog. She mentioned a list of things that DebConf needs from
volunteers [14], so if you are in New York or environs you might
consider helping out if something on the list matches your skills and
interests. There is also an amazing list of free events [15], events
that take place before, during and after DebConf. The list has theatre,
movies and music as well as other types of events to choose from;
during DebConf alone there are free concerts from Gil Scott Heron and
Basia Bulat, just to name a couple.

Debian Live Web Images Builder
------------------------------

Daniel Baumann announced [16] that thanks to outstanding Debian Live
contributor Richard Nelson a live-helper web-frontend of the Debian
Live Project [17] is now available: it lets users get their own
customised images without needing to install live-helper [18] and build
them on their own.

16 : http://blog.daniel-baumann.ch/2010/06/20#20100620_debian-live-webbuilder

Results from the Debian community poll
--------------------------------------

Torsten Werner published the results of his Debian community poll [19]
(followed by a second part [20]) and thanks all participants. With over
80% answering that they do not contribute directly to Debian, this is
the biggest ever survey of Debian's user base, giving hints on how
Debian should deal with its non-free section, its release policy, and
the importance of the Debian Free Software Guidelines [21] to its user
base.

FAI workshop 2010
-----------------

Michael Prokop mentioned on his blog that there will be an FAI workshop
at the Linuxhotel in Essen, Germany [22]. FAI stands for "Fully
Automated Install" and is an important tool when dealing with large
numbers of computers, for example. As Michael writes: "As the name
states the workshop is targeted towards FAI developers. We - the
FAI developers - want to get FAI into shape for "Squeeze" , discuss
pending issues like Ubuntu packaging, release management and of course
meet in real life for networking and socialising." Sounds like fun.

Debian Project at LSM/RMLL 2010
-------------------------------

The Debian Project will be represented at the Libre Software Meeting /
Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre (LSM/RMLL) event in Bordeaux,
France, this year [23]. Debian related talks have been organised, as
well as a Bug Squashing Party (BSP) [24]. Everyone interested in
helping Debian is welcome at the BSP; there will be enough developers
around to sponsor your NMUs.

Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 "Lenny" updated
------------------------------------

The fifth update of Debian's stable distribution Debian GNU/Linux 5.0
(codename [25] "lenny" ) has been released. This update mainly adds
corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a
few adjustments for serious problems. Further updates include the Linux
kernel itself as well as debian-installer.

Debian Project Leader Stefano Zacchiroli proposed some guidelines for
meetings inside the Debian Project [30]. His goal is to help organisers
to provide prerequisites in a community-compatible way, with a process
that includes announcements before the meeting and minutes after.

published last month.

GRUB maintainer Colin Watson gave a small report on the status of the
grub package [34] with regard to several release issues.

34 : http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/ucgi/~cjwatson/blosxom/2010/06/21#2010...

initramfs maintainer Michael Prokop called for testing of
initramfs-tools 0.97 [35], a tool used to create an initial ramdisk
file to boot a system. The packages available should work on all Debian
systems and should be checked on a wide variety of platforms.

35 : http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2010/06/msg00393.html

Debian Project Leader Stefano Zacchiroli reported [36] on his recent
invitation to the European Commission. In a joint session of academic
and industrial research projects and EC commissioners, Stefano helped
summarise best and worst practices in the interaction between research
projects and FOSS communities.

New Developers and Maintainers
------------------------------

Three applicants have been accepted [37] as Debian Maintainers since
the previous issue of the Debian Project News. Please welcome Carl
Chenet, Mathias Behrle and Thomas Koch into our project!

Release-critical bugs statistics for the upcoming release
---------------------------------------------------------

According to the unofficial RC-bugs count [38], the upcoming release,
Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" , is currently affected by 419 release critical
bugs. 65 of them have already been fixed in Debian's "unstable" branch.
Of the remaining 354 release critical bugs, 55 already have a patch
(which might need testing) and 19 are marked as pending.

38 : http://bts.turmzimmer.net/details.php

Ignoring these bugs as well as release critical bugs for packages in
contrib or non-free, 170 release critical bugs remain to be solved for
the release to happen.

Debian's Security Team recently released advisories for these packages
(among others): bind9 [39] (updated), samba [40], sudo [41], pmount
[42], xulrunner [43] and kvirc [44]. Please read them carefully and
