    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.

    Putting packages on hold?
    Submitted by Anonymous on Thursday, November 09, 2000 – 16:07
    I’ve read somewhere that you can put a package ‘on hold’ so that the normal package tools won’t try to upgrade it. When I’ve made some local modification to something that an upgrade would clobber, I really want to use this feature, but I can’t find the documentation on how. I run potato some places and woody others, if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance!
