As a "newbie" I liked the idea instantly in the session, but as the wiki
is still surprisingly empty, lets just add something myself:
"APT debugging 101 – a guided tour through dependency hell"
(officially: "Debugging (dist-)upgrades in APT")

Watching me code is probably really boring, so I guess I will just
give some pointers on how to interpret APT (debug) output, so that
the next time your package isn't considered in a (dist-)upgrade,
you can do better than just "bts reassign apt". ;)

No schedule, time, room or anything yet, so I am very open to any
suggestions you might have (just wanted to add something now even
without having a plan so the wiki doesn't look that empty anymore).

Best regards
