Debian Installer Bug Sqashing Party - 11-13 August

(Reply-to set to debian-boot list.)

The weekend of 11-13 August has been dedicated to Debian Installer [1,2].

SkoleLinux has offered to host a real file BSP in Gütersloh (Germany) [3]. 
There are currently still two places available there; if you would like 
to attend, please register in the wiki.

People not at the real life BSP are of course very welcome to participate. 
Coordination as usual via #debian-bugs and also via #debian-boot, both on 

It is *not* the intention that people upload NMUs for fixed bugs.
One reason for this is that it is currently not certain that Beta 3 will 
have been released (although we certainly hope so); NMUs would severely 
disturb the release process.
Another reason is that installer packages (udebs) are a bit more fragile 
where it comes to dependencies than regular packages because of relaxed 
policy requirements.
Also, there are few or no really release critical bugs to warrant NMUs.

You can really help us though by tracing problems and filing patches.

Please have a look through the open bugs for the installer and see if 
there is anything you'd like to work on.
- List of open issues to resolve before the Sarge release (see last
  section "Post-Beta 3 development"):
- Bugs in packages maintained by the D-I team:
- Bugs in other packages that affect the installer:

If you want to discuss something before the BSP, please contact the D-I 
team on #debian-boot or debian-boot@lists.debian-org.

Some documents that may help you get started:
- http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/Contrib
- http://people.debian.org/~fjp/talks/debconf6/paper/
- documents in installer/doc in SVN

Hope to see you during the BSP,
Frans Pop

P.S. The fact that the weekend is dedicated to the installer does of 
course not mean that you cannot work on other packages during that 
weekend. There're plenty of bugs out there!
