PTS news: accessibility, piuparts, l10n

 A handful of changes have been flowing into the PTS
 (http://packages.qa.debian.org) during DebConf9:

  * the PTS page layout have been re-designed, mainly behind the scenes:
    it no longer uses tables and should be more accessible. As a minor
    drawback, alternative CSS stylesheets beyond the default one are
    currently broken
  * the PTS now shows errors about package installation stressing found by
    piuparts (see http://piuparts.debian.org for more info)
  * the PTS now shows information about the translation status of a
    package and warns when Debian-specific strings (e.g. debconf
    templates) need translations

cvs.debian.org (and its webwml repo) moved to Alioth

 cvs.debian.org has been moved away from gluck.debian.org, its new home is
 alioth.debian.org with all the other version control system. This
 concerns mainly committers to the webwml repository (the website) since
 the associated SSH host key has changed and the password to use is the
 alioth's one (and not the one from Debian's official LDAP).

Git user's survey 2009

 The Git User's Survey 2009[1] is up! If you care about improving Git so
 that it better suits your needs for your Debian work, please take a few
 minutes to answer it. The survey will last until 15th september 2009.

New source formats

 A status update concerning the switch to new source formats has been sent
 to dedian-devel[2]. Test source packages (and an associated APT
 repository) are available. The main blocker is the merge of the branch
 that adds support of new source formats to dak. Check out the message for
 more details on what has been done and what's planned.
