Survey of new contributors
As initially mentioned in [1], I surveyed new contributors (people who just had 
their first package accepted in Debian). A summary of results is available at 
[2]. The raw answers are available to Debian Developers. (just ask me)

Logo registration as a trademark
Following previous work on this topic [1,2], our trademark team worked
very hard and forwarded everything needed (or at least we hope so!) to
register the Debian logo as a US trademark to our legal counsel,
Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC).

Nicolas Dandrimont <olasd> has been delegated as a GSOC admin[1], as
he became a DD recently. The list of delegations has been updated
on our website[2].

Follow-up: call for help: Debian Auditors
Two volunteers (Christopher Browne and Brian Gupta) answered the
call for help, and are going to be mentored by our current auditors
(Martin Michlmayr and Martin Wuertele). Thanks!

- Approved shipping of console servers bought last year
 ($80 + 32€ for german customs)
- Approved purchase of remotely-managed PDU (110€)
  and cables for the console server (40€)

Day-to-day log
As usual, my day-to-day log of DPL activities is
available on master:/srv/leader/news/bits-from-the-DPL.txt.201307

Reminder: sprints!
It's possible and easy to organize a sprint for your team.
See https://wiki.debian.org/Sprints for details.
