Bits from DEHS
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
It's been some time since DEHS had some 'big' changes (probably since its
creation). Here's a list of changes that have been done lately:
* "new" look&feel
DEHS' website now has a look similar to other *.d.o pages.
More restyling will be done at some point in the future :).
* DEHS statistics
For some time now DEHS provides a statistics page which show the
overall "external status" of Debian over the time.
The big bumps shown were some changes/tweaks in the backend, not something
deserving a 'great'.
* Updated uscan
DEHS is now using, and will continue to use, the latest uscan version
This will increase the quality of the checks by using the latest
improvements of uscan.
* New upstream version notifications
Since yesterday DEHS started sending notifications to the 'summary'
tag/keyword of the PTS when it finds a new upstream version.
Anyone interested in receiving this kind of notifications please see the
PTS' documentation on how to subscribe.
Note that there are some packages shipping a watch file which reports an
incorrect upstream version.
I'm going to fill reports on those I notice.
* Fresher data
DEHS now refreshes its data daily (new/updated packages only) and several
times a month (archive wide) meaning the data is fresher than ever.
Some more work is being done so packages are checked even more often by
making use of timestamps, reducing the workload and providing even fresher
data at the same time.
Hoping I didn't miss any other important change I invite anyone interested
in joining DEHS' development or wanting to know more about it to contact me
(I don't think Stefano will reject anyone willing to continue with his
