Stefano Zacchiroli
<a href="http://upsilon.cc/~zack/blog/posts/2013/07/introducing_sources.debian.net/";>introduced
a new service</a> allowing to browse and search among all the source code
provided in Debian packages:
<a href="http://sources.debian.net/";>sources.debian.net</a>.

<toc-add-entry name="delegations">Updating delegations</toc-add-entry>
Following his previous announcement about
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2013/06/msg00003.html";>revocation
of obsolete delegations</a>, Lucas Nussbaum started to update the
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2013/06/msg00004.html";>delegation
for the Policy Editors</a>, welcoming Jonathan Nieder in the team, and the
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2013/06/msg00005.html";>delegation 
for the summer of code administrators</a>, welcoming Sukhbir Singh officially
among them. More updates will follow.

<toc-add-entry name="trademark">Debian Trademark Team</toc-add-entry>
Although there has not been an official announcement or delegation yet, Lucas Nussbaum
stated that Debian does now have a 
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2013/06/msg00132.html";>proper
Trademark Team</a>.

Other than working through the backlog of use requests and Debian-related domain names,
the Trademark Team is currently working on getting the Debian logo registered in the U.S.A.
first and internationally afterwards.

<toc-add-entry name="jessie">Architectures supported in Jessie</toc-add-entry>
During their previous
<a href="$(HOME)/News/weekly/2013/13/#dsasprint">sprint</a>, the Debian System
Administrators (DSA) set a
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2013/06/msg00606.html";>list of
requirements</a> they consider necessary to support a port for the next stable
release. They listed some specific concerns for the following architectures:
armel, armhf, hurd, mips, mipsel, sparc, and s390/x; most of them are
currently being addressed, but porters may welcome some help for this support.
