<toc-add-entry name="dw-irc">Debian Women IRC meeting</toc-add-entry>

The Debian Women group
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-women/2013/09/msg00020.html";>held an
IRC meeting</a> on September 7th. The topic was how to encourage women to get
involved in Debian. Projects were discussed for the next Outreach Program for
Women, but also smaller tasks and rewards for people that do not know how to
contribute. It was also proposed to hold local events, possibly with other
groups of women involved in FLOSS, and to restart IRC training sessions.
The meeting was well attended and discussions continued after the official end.
Margarita Manterola sent
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-women/2013/09/msg00032.html";>minutes of
the meeting</a>.

Niels Thykier sent
<a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2013/08/msg00006.html";>some
bits from the Release Team</a>, containing
propositions to improve Jessie development cycle: a change to the
testing migration rule, automated removals and automated metrics for
architecture qualification for Jessie.

In related news, Jonathan Withshire 
<a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2013/09/msg00001.html";>sent
a call for release goals for Jessie</a>.
To propose a goal, a page on the
<a href="http://wiki.debian.org/ReleaseGoals";>wiki</a> should be created with a
short goal description, details of the advocate(s) and how the goal will be
achieved before September, 30th.

<toc-add-entry name="bits-dpl">Bits from the DPL</toc-add-entry>

Lucas Nussbaum sent his
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2013/09/msg00002.html";>monthly
report of DPL activities for August 2013</a>. Among other things, Lucas mentioned
the status of MariaDB in Debian and the fact that Debian was invited to
participate in the OpenZFS community.

He also summarized some actions taken as a consequence of the
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2013/08/msg00011.html";>survey
of new contributors</a>, such that the creation of a package how-can-i-help,
and an encouragement to ask packaging questions on localized mailing lists.

start soon. If you are willing to be a coordinator for the Debian side, please contact
