    Got that latest or greatest scoop? Perhaps you have some important news for the Debian community? Submit a news item!

    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    General feedback should be sent to staff@debianplanet.org

    The place to get help on a Debian problem (after reading docs) or to just chat and chill is #debian on irc.oftc.net.

    Many of the Debian Planet staff live there so pop by and say hello.

    Debian Planet also has its own channel on the same network called #debianplanet.

    Release Candidate Architecture Requalification Results
    Submitted by Eric Railine on Tuesday, December 27, 2005 – 15:59
    DebianSteve Langasek posted to debian-devel-announce the current results for the requalification status of the various Debian architectures for Etch. The good news is that amd64 is currently a release candidate for Etch; the bad news is that four other ports are not: arm, m68k, s390, and (surprisingly) sparc. Please note that this is only the current requalification status: ports currently in release candidate condition may fall off prior to Etch’s actual/eventual release, while hopefully some or all of the four that are not releaseable today while become RC in time for Etch.
