    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.

    Submitted by Eric Railine on Tuesday, November 29, 2005 – 20:55

    Debian Planet Turns Five Years Old
    Submitted by robster on Tuesday, October 25, 2005 – 18:10
    The title says it all really. I know that the last year has been relatively slow but hopefully things will pick up again now that we’re actively recruiting and training new editors.

    Thanks to all the readers and contributors for making this worthwhile. I suggest you keep an eye out, some improvements are afoot…

    Debian 12 Years Old
    Submitted by robster on Tuesday, August 16, 2005 – 14:51
    DebianOn its 12th birthday the “universal operating system” is fully available on 12 different architectures (the released 11 plus AMD64). This wide range really does make Debian universal since everything from the smallest embedded devices to the largest mainframes can (and do) run Debian. What an achievement!

    Submitted by robster on Tuesday, June 07, 2005 – 20:44
    SargeJust because you read it on Slashdot doesn’t mean its not true. (Official announcement). When upgrading don’t forget to read the release notes. A very small problem with the original CD images produced has also been discovered.
