    Debian hits Bug#100000!
    by robot101 on Friday, June 08 @ 19:14:25 BST

    As scores of Debian Developers watched with baited breath, Joey Hess’s bts bot gave us a real-time count out of new bugs to our channel on OPN…

    Click below for the exciting conclusion

    And my cheap rip off of it reported similar information to #debian-bugs, with the addition of the submitter… the momentuous message:

    [#100000] jed: In an Xterm, running Screen, jed's Alt+ keycombos do not work. Feel free to reassign. (

    And there was much rejoycing! Multiple units of alcohol were consumed by developers across the world. Problem is, none of us know how to fix it… 😛

    You probably guessed, master is back up, but the IP changed so we’re waiting on some DNS updates. Be gentle… =)
