Debian Weekly News
Debian Weekly News - March 29th, 2001
Welcome to Debian Weekly News, a newsletter for the Debian community.

And the winner is ... Ben Collins. Congratulations to our new Debian
Project Leader, and thanks to all the candidates for volunteering.
Here is Ben's [1]acceptance message. Details about the result of the
vote are [2]here. Note that elsewhere, full details of who voted for
what were accidentally posted; DPL votes are not supposed to be made
public, but it was an [3]honest mistake.

This is the last edition of Debian Weekly News for a while. There are
several reasons to stop publication:
  * DWN's editor is preparing for a cross-country move, and won't have
    time for the next month to prepare the newsletter.
  * After two years of weekly publication, it's becoming quite a
    strain to maintain a consistent level of quality in the
    newsletter. Posting intervals have already become somewhat
    sporadic, and content of late has been thin. This is not due to
    any lack of activity in Debian to report on, but rather due to one
    person becoming a bit jaded with reporting on the project.
Publication may restart in May, or this may be the last edition of
DWN. Whatever happens, Debian news continues to be available from
other sources: [4]Kernel Cousin Debian, [5]Debian Planet, and even
[6]Linux Weekly News. Rather than reopen, it may make better sense
for Debian Weekly News to merge with one of the above news sources.
Your comments and suggestions are [7]welcome, and thank you for
reading Debian Weekly News!
