    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

    IRC
    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.

    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.

    2.2r2 will be out right after these messages…
    Submitted by ressu on Monday, November 20, 2000 – 19:56
    Anthony Towns mentioned today that potato r2 will be out when the showstopper list has first been created and then cleared. It seems that the new revision wont come out so soon after all, although Anthony mentioned that as soon as the showstopper list was clear r2 would be released.

    here is the original mail for this

    Handy packaging commands
    Submitted by Anonymous on Monday, November 20, 2000 – 18:21
    Yep, so you’ve heard all about Debian’s super-duper packaging system, how it’s the best thing that ever happened in the Linux package manager world, etc., etc.. But how do you actually *use* the powerful tools?


    Netsnipe: Update (10:22GMT) – Sorry I’ve been out of the loop recently, too busy organising for my school formal and rebuilding my box. It would seem like a record number of users from .rpm-based distros have just converted to Debian and asking about the magnificent .deb system on #debian. So within this week I’ll have my guide to Debian package management and a review of the coolest tools up. So hold on a little longer!

    Debian-user archive goodies
    Submitted by Brad on Sunday, November 19, 2000 – 09:09
    Every once in a while, someone will post something useful to the debian-user mailing list. So why not go read about TrueType fonts in X4 or Writing a sources.list line. Or read the discussions on Editors, Wildcard Renaming of Files, or X for Windows. And this is just from the past week!

    New French irc channel
    Submitted by Zippo on Saturday, November 18, 2000 – 22:15
    There is a new French irc channel on irc.openproject.net. : #debian-france.
    Dedicated to the French speaking Debian users.

    If there are many country specific Debian channels perhaps we could setup an IRC section with details about them?

    Article: Quickstart guide to kernel-package
    Submitted by robster on Saturday, November 18, 2000 – 21:02
    One of the things that drew me to and kept me loving Debian was the kernel-package tools so I decided to write a quick article to increase awareness of this wonderful unique tool and to give you a quick intro into its basic usage. The article can be read here. Enjoy.
