    Debian 2.2r2 probably due in 10 days
    Submitted by xerxes on Tuesday, November 14, 2000 – 19:47
    As stated in the official announcement of 2.2r1″ Debian 2.2r2 is probably due within 10 days : “The Debian team is currently working on several security issues and other bug fixes are pending. A 2.2r2 release is expected within the next 10 days to address these issues. It is recommended that people wishing to install these updates or create CD images wait until the release of version 2.2r2 to do so.” The debian-cd team in reaction have stated that there (probably) wont be a cdimage of 2.2r1 because of this, and that people should wait for 2.2r2: “Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 revision 1 has been released. At this moment, it is uncertain if updated CD images will be produced, since revision 2 might also be released very soon. We hope to have more definite information in a few days. “

    Ask DP: KDE2 in Potato, how?
    Submitted by Anonymous on Tuesday, November 14, 2000 – 11:47
    I recently decided to dive into KDE2, I used it with another woody box, and my friends Mandrake 7.2 Box. Im running potato, i like my stability and dont want to upgrade to woody. kde.org has .debs for potato and without any documentation i proceeded to install all of them with dpkg -i *.deb. Bad Idea ;), libmng isnt in potato at all and its required by kde2 and all of its lil buddys, it isnt included in the debs provided by kde. And the woody deb of libmng requires a new libc6, what should a potato user like me do to get kde2 up an running? compiling from the source is NOT an option, i dont think you want to sit and compile like 40 packages on my schedual.

    Debian new maintainer process reaches 100 applicants
    Submitted by robster on Saturday, November 11, 2000 – 14:38
    “In the last week, the number of new members admitted into Debian by the New-Maintainer process has passed the 100 mark. There are more than 100 applicants currently being processed by Application Managers and fewer than 100 potential applicants waiting in the queue for the next available Application Manager. This represents a major milestone in the new procedure, indicating that the machinery is in full operation and doorway into Debian is fully open once again.”

    Said the email that dropped into my mailbox, the rest follows.

    Resolution to Abolish Non-free Expires
    Submitted by solomon on Friday, November 10, 2000 – 20:23
    The controversial General Resolution for the removal of non-free from Debian has expired. The expiration is surrounded by some disturbing circumstances: the Project Secretary went absent for a long time while the resolution was discussed, and upon returning did not expire the Resolution until ballots had already been issued and the votes sent (but not tallied). The short thread regarding the expiration is not very explanatory, but more information can be found by browsing the last few months of the debian-vote mailing list.
