Translations for the debian web site maintained by Jérôme Marant

This is a automatically generated mail sent to you
because you are the official translator of some pages
in french of the Debian web site.

I send you the diff between the version you translated and
the current version to allow you to update your work.

For more informations, contact your team coordinator, or
the Debian web-masters (debian-www@lists.debian.org).

Thanks, and sorry for the annoyance.

+<b>On the 30th a BugSquash party will be held</b>, in which as many developers

+be via IRC. Previous BugSquash parties have been sucessful at fixing lots

+<a href="mail#1">participation</a> is encouraged.
+<b>The size of Debian continues to be a concern this week.</b> Potato is too
+big to fit on two CD's of binary packages, and 
+<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-9910/msg01297.html";>almost</a>
+everyone feels Debian is becoming unweildy. The 47MB package mentioned last
+week was removed from the archive at the
+<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-9910/msg01242.html";>request</a>
+of its maintainer, and other removals are being considered.
+<b>Work on the boot floppies continues</b> on many fronts, including

+<b>The dpkg bug list is now smaller and more organized.</b>
+Dpkg has <a href="http://bugs.debian.org/dpkg";>less than 200 bugs</a> now.
+This amazing feat (dpkg used to have 500+ bugs) is the result of lots of
+work on dpkg, as well as a <a href="http://bugs.debian.org/dpkg-iwj";>new
+section</a> in the BTS for upstream dpkg bugs.
+<b>A belated security note</b>: A fixed apmd package was

+Lalo Martins made a
+<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-project-9910/msg00052.html";>
+proposal</a> to <b>make Debian use package pools starting as soon as potato is
+frozen</b>. He intends to call for a vote in two weeks. Package pools have been
+frequently discussed in the past, but no action has ever been taken to
+implement them; perhaps this will start the ball rolling, though it might be
+<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-project-9910/msg00070.html";>
+difficult</a> to implement everything in time. Anthony Towns posted a
+<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-project-9910/msg00060.html";>
+counterproposal</a> that has many of the nice features of package pools
+without requiring any major changes to the archive.
