>Debian Weekly News - July 13th, 1999

>Welcome to Debian Weekly News, a newsletter for the Debian developer
>Storm Linux is a new distribution [8]based on Debian. Its motto is
>"Storm Linux: we make linux look good", and it seems they do -- take a
>look at these [9]screenshots. The developer of Storm is R Garth Wood,
>who has been [10]active on debian-devel for a while. There has been
>little reaction to this development though a report on a test install
>has been [11]posted.
>The web site now has a page for the [12]Hurd port. It covers
>installation, development, etc. Speaking of the web site, it finally
>uses the new logo. And the [13]results are in for the logo swap vote:
>the logos have been swapped. Go forth and use the swirl.
>There's been an increasing amount of discussion about freezing and
>release plans this week. From [14]talk on the new debian-release list
>about shortening the release cycle to a discussion about whether a
>[15]Spetember release is possible (with a freeze very soon), the idea
>is in the air.
>Lalo Martins [16]posted about internationalizing Debian's init
>scripts. It's turning into a more general discussion about init script
>output, see [17]this proposal for example.
>Here is a [18]complete system for generating diffs between debian
>packages and applying those diffs. This could be used to "seriously
>reduce download times"
>As usual, we have some [19]news from the Debian-JP project. One thing
>they're dealing with is translating the copyright of software that is
>documented only in japanese.
>Many packages remain broken after the perl update. The [20]next
>planned step is to file important bugs against these packages and
>quickly make non maintainer releases of them.
>Thanks to Christian Meder and Katsura S. Yoshio for [21]contributing.
