    Debian-devel threads: dpkg-statoverride vs. suidmanager
    Submitted by ressu on Thursday, November 30, 2000 – 09:19
    today, an interesting threads appeared on debian-devel list, about moving from suidmanager to dpkg-statoverride. the main problem was, how it should be done and how to migrate the old suidmanager settings with the local additions to dpkg-statoverride database. there were
    nice suggestions
    , but the one that appeared to be the winner is >–import-from-suidregister, which is already in >CVS tree.
    This is interesting reading for everyone who used suidmanager in theyre packages.

    World rolling with it’s own weight.
    Submitted by ressu on Wednesday, November 29, 2000 – 14:39
    ok, there hasn’t been much to report lately, everything has been going on like normal, nothing out of the ordinary.
    there has been a small demo of the new installer, which looked nice. I’m waiting to see it in action once it gets finished..
    security fixes are the biggest changes lately, you better upgrade if you haven’t done it yet..

    the rumours for 2.2r2 are getting stronger.. it will come, please be patient.

    Woody has now reached more than 6000 packages, no wonder apt-get update takes so long :). Congrats to all those who have worked hard for Debian. This is an important milestone. Thanks goto xk for this scoop. Keep up the good work

    IRC Meeting over
    Submitted by agl on Saturday, November 25, 2000 – 21:18
    The DebianPlance IRC meeting has finished and was generally a sucess, except that the rep from DebianHelp didn’t show. The full log is below

    Main Points:
    * Ask DebianPlanet is to be retargetted to more general questions
    * DP will stress it’s news/comment stance rather than Q&A
    * DH should try to bring together the lists, FAQ-O-Matic and forum
    * People like Featured Articals, and DP will try to do more of them
    * The Debian WebTree is unweildly and probably impractical for a weblog
    * Make DP an official news source for Debian and closer integration where possible with debian.org
    * DP will try to get planet.debian.org
    * More interviews
    * Sidebars with information on package status and security alerts etc
    * Sourceforge project to host the changes to the PHPNuke core
    * The creation of Staff pages

    Debian member of the GNOME foundation
    Submitted by robster on Thursday, November 23, 2000 – 21:53
    Debian is now a member of the GNOME foundation. Press release follows.

    Personally I think it is great that Debian has a place on the foundation as one of the most popular 101% free distros with a growing number of users. It can help represent the views of the developers and the users from a DFSG point of view.
