Summary: Extremadura meetings 2007


Last year, we had the opportunity to hold 3 work meetings in Extremadura, 
Spain, sponsored by the regional goverment. 
I would like to thank César and all the Linex people for hosting us.

Here is a summary of what we achieved at the meetings.

october meeting

The Debian Edu team met and worked on the release of Debian Edu / Skolelinux 3.0r1
"Terra". You can read the release announcement at
One of the major results of the Debian Edu meeting was that GNU/LinEx has started 
to be merged into Debian Edu. Please see http://lwn.net/Articles/242939/
for more details.
At the same event, the FAI and Debian Science teams also met.

november meeting

At the largest of the three meetings, the QA, VoIP and Zope teams met 
in Mérida.

The Zope team worked on Plone version 3 using a new packaging infrastructure.
This makes it possible to prepare new Plone releases in a semi-automated way, 
so that a new release can be uploaded several hours after upstream releases it.
At the same time, a few security-related bugs have been fixed in
zope-common and zope-debhelper, the basic packages for the Zope packaging
in Debian.

The VoIP team had a bug squashing session and went through the list of packages 
from their repository evaluating their status.

From the QA team there were 2 mails:

december meeting

Concurrently with the Hispalinux X conference, the Qt/KDE and i18n teams met 
in Cáceres. There were report mails from both teams in this list:

Qt/KDE: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2008/01/msg00001.html
i18n: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2008/01/msg00002.html

We will have more meetings this year. More info at
