    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.

    KDE 3.0
    Submitted by Anonymous on Tuesday, April 16, 2002 – 07:20
    KDE 3 is not in Debian. KDE will not be in sid itself until XFree86 4.2 is, but will be available for testing before then.
    If you don’t like this, don’t post abusively. The packager (not me now) has exams in 2 weeks. You can make your own KDE 3 debs and distribute them to the world. Either that, or you might want to consider actually paying the developer.

    Joy: Annoyance expressed in the above message is a trademark of The Debian Maintainers of Large Package Suites. 😉
    Just in case you wondered, DanielS posted this after reading two news submissions for the site that included a fair amount of swearing about not having KDE 3 packages. So if you’re just a normal user, please accept our apologies for making it sound as if you did something wrong.
    It is true that site editors shouldn’t be allowed to rant too much, and I can say that we will try to contain DanielS from further outbursts <shrug> And this article won’t be deleted because a bunch of trolls will then invade the other stories and blame us for censorship ;-p

    What’s with all the “Debian sucks, I’m switching to *BSD” posts? Why would any of you post that? What do you hope to gain or who do you hope to help? Debian users? BSD users?

    Second, since when has Debian tried to be avant-guard? I’ve never advertised Debian to my friends as being up-to-date with the latest glossy software. I advertise it as having a difficult install and a steep learning curve which rewards the effort with consistency, quality, developer responsiveness and security.

    Every distribution, commercial or private, free or proprietary, with any kernel, with any mix of GNU packages, with any policy, has its own purpose. If none of them suit you, feel free to post constructive criticizm, but don’t go ragging on people or projects as if they are somehow slacking off or making poor decisions. If it bothers you that much, switch distributions or make your own.

    Kudos for DebianPlanet for having the patience to tolerate this nonsense.

    Here’s my final (tongue in cheek) response: “I’ve been meaning to change my default browsing threshold on Debian Planet for a long time, and I finally did because of this threads comments.”

    Yeesh.

    As I always say “I’m not an elitist, I just want decent package management”.

    apt-get install whatever-I-want 🙂

    What do you mean, tolerate? I wish I had a button to nuke most of the shit in here.

    Developer responsiveness? Isn’t this exactly what we are talking about right now? total lack of developer responsiveness? yes i think it is.
