    Joel, This one is for you.
    Submitted by ressu on Wednesday, October 25, 2000 – 08:34
    www.debian.org has, officially today, been moved to klecker.debian.org. The new system is a VA Linux 2240 model, it is the replacement for va.debian.org, which broke down a month back.
    As Some of you know, the current Distribution is deticated to Joel ‘espy’ Klecker, who was willing to donate some of his last moments to the Debian project. This server was named after him, so he can be remembered by all the developers, and users.

    Opinion: Is there a future for non-free in Debian?
    Submitted by robster on Tuesday, October 24, 2000 – 22:50
    Following the proposal made by John Goerzen concerning the further speration of non-free from Debian, it got me thinking. With so many packages having DFSG compatible licences and therefore being included in the main distribution is non-free still needed.


    Good examples of this include QT (and therefore KDE) are GPL, Mozilla’s dual licencing to replace Netscape.

    Setting up your own apt source?
    Submitted by Anonymous on Tuesday, November 30, 1999 – 00:00
    I am a hobbyist coder and a Debian fanatic. I have lately discovered the joys of making Debian packages. I was wondering if I could set up an apt source containing only software written by yours truly, so that in the remote chance that someone is interested in said software, they could add something to /etc/apt/sources.list and apt-get my not-so-impressive software. How would I lay out the directories, what special files would I need, how do I make/update them, and what would I need in sources.list?
