Hi everybody,

the time has come and in order to carry on a tradition, I want to remind everybody of our combined efforts to take care of some poor souls at this time of the year.

The days are closing in, the year is drawing to an end and we should think of all those, that are not around with their own kind. Again, during the last few months, lots of volunteers all around the world tracked down those poor souls and put their cases in the database. We should take care of those needy. This year, there are about 260 cases which are relevant to Debian Med[1] (28 being serious[2]). So please feel pity for them and allow the transition of as many as possible poor souls to their final destination, the retirement community in the Archive. Maybe some of the "won't fix" can be resolved as well.

Furthermore I would like to mention another page[3] with lots of information about Debian Med packages. Besides the list of RC bugs you can also see packages that can not be built on a Debian architecture, packages that are not allowed to migrate from unstable to testing (and thus won't be included in the next release) and packages with a new upstream version. I think those packages need some care as well.

As soon as I get the notice of a closed case I will record that in our Advent calendar[4].

In contrast to normal calendars, let us fill this special one with lots of good deeds. Maybe we can hide at least one number of a closed case behind every door and I am sure we will be much better than last year.

Have fun,
