    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.

    Woody reaches 6000+ packages

    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

    What’s up with the log? Disney didn’t let you use the real Woody?

    ok.. we could have used woody and the real potato for the logos.. i think this is more original..

    i was thought about woody the woodpecker for the logo, but that might have been violating copyright…

    Subject: Binary Packages Lists?

    What does everyone think about having a binary package list, compiled by the server you download from via a cron job, that you download instead of compiling and merging one on your system? Would this make it faster to search for packages? What penalties would be involved?

    Almost completly pointless; throw apt-get update in a cron job if you like, it will have basically the same effect.

    That depends on how you count. If you include contrib and non-free, the total is over 6000, but if you include only debian proper (main), the total is just 5490.
