Happy Birthday, Debian. ๐ŸŽ‚ ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐ŸŽˆ
25 years old.

Ian Murdock announced #Debian on August 16th 1993. The first release, 0.01, was made the next month, on September 15th.

Congratulations & thanks to the Debian volunteers, past and present, for making it such a fantastic distro. Here's to the next 25 years.

Today I uploaded (github.com/FeralInteractive/ga) to unstable. Please test and let me know how it goes or file a bug.

What I love about this is seeing so many people here learning Debian packaging. Glad that people are also spending the time helping others, it's so much easier learning from a person than navigating the docs by yourself!

In DebConf19 (Brazil) Meeting. Good start I'm already looking forward to in Curitiba.

And that's why I think we need to keep RSS/Atom despite big companies dropping support because RSS and Atom work precisely for the slow web, the small sites, for average Internet people, for us.

Today at , checking out some features for DebConf video and thinking about a partitioning layout language of sorts.

Been a crazy week, getting ready to leave for Taiwan tomorrow morning for DebConf18!

I'm in Rwanda for the week upgrading an Ubuntu 14.04 centre to Debian 9 and implementing a few new things at AIMS Rwanda. Going well so far.

Heading to Rwanda, and I didn't make the videos I was going to for next week due to bike riding this week (I needed it though).

Today I updated the package calamares to version 3.2.1 in Debian unstable. Upstream changelog: calamares.io/calamares-3.2.1-i
