I started a coordination page for a CDD meeting at


I personally have no sharp preferences for a meeting date.
Currently I have only some dates I would like to exclude:
September 8., October 13. and October 31 to November 4.
I'd like to hear suggestions for a reasonable date that will
enable many interested people to join.

Hi Andreas (Tille),

I would be glad to participate in such a event even if just online
since I'm not in Europe, if you want to work on and discuss stuff
like: Simple-CDD (vagrantc participation would be a huge win) and the
debian-cd ng in python (debian-images-generator, or just dig as I call

I've been working on dig since the last debcamp, and the side effect
of a full featured new debian-cd is that it converts Simple-CDD in a
simple "profile selector", something that can be added as a plugin
into dig later. Keep in mind that there's no need to burn Simple-CDD
and CDD toolkit from the first day. Simple-CDD already contains code
to pick a different debian-cd for dig tests. Obsolete Simple-CDD and
pretty much other CDD tools is a dig side effect, not really a goal.
It will happen simple because redoing debian-cd we can extend it for
our current needs in a way that Debian is just a CDD with one D and C.

Btw, there's more on my dig work sitting at debian-cd mailing list and
my git repository at people.d.o/~stratus/git/d-i-g.git. I've some more
experimental stuff work going on, including local mirror support using
debpartial-mirror. Unfortunately, I've found out that there's some
serious dp-m breakage in terms of multiple architectures. Need to find
some time to resume work on that with Otavio Salvador. There's a
workaround on my tree for that though (use one dp-m backend for each

Well, great idea anyway. I hope to see you there or work online in some form.
