Free Software Activities (2019-09)

By jonathan

It’s been a busy month on a personal level so there’s a bunch of my Debian projects that have been stagnant this month, I hope to fix that over October/November.

Upload sponsoring: This month, when sponsoring package uploads for Debian, I prioritised Python team uploads above mentors.debian.net uploads (where I usually spend my reviewing attention). The Python 2 deprecation is turning out to be a lot of work so I think the Python team can do with a lot more support from everyone at this point.

DebConf: I resigned from the DebConf Committee, I might consider joining again if there’s a position open again in the future. I’m not going to DC20 so it seems like a good to cut back a bit to help me focus more on my technical projects. I’ll still be involved in the DebConf team. Over the next DebConf cycle I’ll still be involved in bursaries and want to cover a whole bunch of documentation and policy improvements that are sorely needed. I also want to finish up the ToeTally integration with Voctomix for the video team and hopefully try it out at a minidebconf within the next year.

Debian Live: calamares-settings-debian has been updated for bullseye, although as of this time we don’t have new images available with that yet. I started looking in to the vmdebootstrap deprecation, it’s going to be more work than I originally thought, so there’s a good possibility we might be switching to FAI for generating live images. I have a script called debmower that works ok and creates good images, but it’s a somewhat hacky shell script and if I ever had the time to rewrite it in Python I might propose that too, but unfortunately finding the time too maintain more things is hard, so I think FAI is the way to go. Isabelle Simpkins created testing artwork so that Debian testing images are easier to differentiate from the last stable release. These will be replaced in Debian as soon as the next release artwork is available.
