Rebuild of the Debian archive with clang

Sylvestre Ledru performed a study that rebuilt the Debian archive using clang
[1], a new C/C++/Objective-C compiler. The goal was to evaluate the current
capabilities of clang for compilation and C/C++/objective-C support. Results
are available on the Debian clang web pages [2].

Debian Peru revival

Rudy Godoy blogged about a revival of the Debian Peru local group [3]. The
Debian Peru users group was founded in 2004 and was quite active in spreading
the word about Debian and Free Software, but then slowed down its activity.
However, in the two last weeks, the group has become active again and they're
planning various events and meetings aimed at helping people to contribute to
Debian. You can find more information in the group wiki page [4] or on their
mailing list [5].

DebConf11 final report is out

The DebConf organisation team released the final report of the 2011 Debian
Conference, which was held in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The report
can be downloaded from the DebConf media website [6].

In related news, the DebConf committee decided that DebConf13 will take place
in Switzerland [7], likely in the middle of August. The Swiss bid narrowly won
over the bid from Riga, Latvia.

Debian Utsav

Shirish Agarwal reported on the Debian Utsav [8] which took place in Pune last
month. "Debian Utsav is celebration of Debian folks — meet at one place,
eat, drink and work on Debian!" as Praveen — one of the main organisers —
explained in anannouncement message [9]. During the meeting there were some
interesting talks and workshops, such as "Debian history",
"What goes on in making Debian" and "Introducing to packaging".

Other news

The 29th issue of the miscellaneous news for developers [10] has been released
and covers the following topics:

  10 : http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2012/03/msg00000.html

 * New Iceweasel add-on to help looking up developer sites
 * Realtime collaborative text editing services for Debian
 * DEP9: Availability of reconf-inetd (replacement for update-inetd)
 * Security tracker improvements

 * Support for copyright format 1.0 (developed as DEP5)

Sylvestre Ledru wrote a report from the Parisian bug squashing party [11] at
IRILL's offices. 104 bugs were fixed. One of the key achievements of this BSP
was that Cyril Brulebois fixed the last few packages that had been still using
the Yada packaging tool.

Leandro Gómez sent out a call for volunteers for DebConf12 [12] on his blog.
Leandro explained how DebConf brings a lot of benefits to the Debian project:
during the conference, Debian contributors can share knowledge and have
discussions in order to improve various aspects of Debian, including packages,
translations, and the infrastructure.

According to the Bugs Search interface of the Ultimate Debian Database
[27], the upcoming release, Debian 7.0  "Wheezy", is currently affected
by 575 Release-Critical bugs. Ignoring bugs which are easily solved or
on the way to being solved, roughly speaking, about 385 Release-Critical
bugs remain to be solved for the release to happen.
