it is incredible but this time of the year has come again and in order to
carry on a tradition, I want to remind everybody of our combined efforts
to take care of some poor souls.
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 240 cases
which are relevant to Debian Med (this time 50 are 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
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
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.
