Subject: This Saturday, learn how "apt-get" works!

Dear students (Comp Engg and IT):

CoFSUG is  organizing a session on "Debian Packaging" on Saturday. All
of you are invited for the same.

* What is the session all about?
Teaching you how packaging works on Debian/Ubuntu systems. You would
be knowing that all you have to do is run commands like "apt-get
install vlc" to install any software like "vlc" on Ubuntu/Debian
systems. The command automatically fetches the "package" from the web
and installs it for you. This sessions explores all the things
involved in this process. It is a part of "Debian Utsav" as mentioned
on http://wiki.debian.org/DebianIndia/DebianUtsav2012

* What will I learn? How do I benefit?
Many things! Things which one normally learns only after entering IT industry.
 - Enter the exiting world of FOSS community! Start becoming a
developer (right here in college!) rather than waiting for some
company to show mercy on you!
 -  How to create an "installable" package from a given source code
(so that it works with apt-get or dpkg commands)
 -  How the FOSS community works
 -  About coding standards
 -  Etiquettes of communicating on web
 - How Free Software gets developed - how the people of the world work
together to do extraordinary feats!

You have to keep reminding your government that you don't get your
rights from them; you give them permission to rule, only so long as
they follow the rules: laws and constitution.
