<a href="https://wiki.debian.org/DebianDay";>Debian Day</a>
is celebrated on August 16 of each year and
<a href="https://wiki.debian.org/DebianDay/2014";>this year</a>
it falls on a Saturday. So far it looks like 8 towns/cities in 3 countries
will be celebrating Debian Day in 2014 and there will be 5 celebrations
in Brazil and one in both México and Sweden. If you have a celebration planned,
please register on the wiki and add a page about it. If you don't yet have one
planned, why not join us in celebrating Debian?

on the number of Debian Developers per Country has been updated for 2014.
The report includes data per year from 2009 to present year 2014.

<toc-add-entry name="Openambit">OpenAmbit is now in unstable</toc-add-entry>

As reported by Christian Perrier in a <a href="http://www.perrier.eu.org/weblog/2014/07/18#openambit";>weblog entry<a/>,
OpenAmbit, a project which is developing open software for the Suunto Ambit

<toc-add-entry name="debianportsarms">Debian Arm64 port at 85%</toc-add-entry>

Wookey sends a <a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-arm/2014/08/msg00096.html";>request for help as well as an update </a>in a report post to the
Debian ARM list. The arm64 port is open in the main archive and is 84.5% built
with 180 packages currently queued. This places the overall project extremely
close to the 85% needed for <a href="https://ftp-master.debian.org/archive-criteria.html";>qualification</a>.
There are many packages not yet built from Debian sources which need assistance
towards the goal of bootstrapping arm64 in time for Jessie. A list of the
<a href="https://people.debian.org/~wookey/bootstrap/blockerlist";>arm64 port
blocking packages </a> is generated once a day.

As a first step towards mandatory source-only uploads, Ansgar Burchardt
<a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2014/08/msg00002.html";>announced</a>
that source-only uploads into the Debian archive are now accepted, under some
conditions: in particular, the source packages must be already present in the
archive and must not create new binary packages, and only architecture specific
binary packages can be dropped from the the list of files upload.
