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
(28 being serious). 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 with lots of
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
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.
