Debian Project At LSM/RMLL 2010

The Debian Project is happy to announce that it will be represented at
the Libre Software Meeting / Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre
(LSM/RMLL) event in Bordeaux, France, this year. At the booth, members
of the project will be available for questions and discussions and will
give a preview of Debian 6.0 "Squeeze", which is expected to be released
this year.

The Debian project invites users, developers and everyone else
interested to visit the booth and ask questions, discuss technical
issues and meet the Debian project and its developers in person.

Bug Squashing Party

In order to help Debian towards the release of Squeeze, a Bug Squashing
Party will be held during LSM/RMLL.

Even if you are not a Debian developer, as long as you are interested in
helping Debian to get all the open release-critical bugs fixed, you're
welcome at the BSP. There will be enough developers around to sponsor
your NMUs.

There are some more information about BSPs [6] and RC-Bugsquashing [7].

Coordination for the BSP is done on the wiki page [8].

2010 Libre Software Meeting is a free (as a beer and as a speech) and
non commercial conference with talks, workshops and round tables about
Free Software and its uses. The LSM goal is to provide a place for
exchange between Free Software developers, users and stakeholders.

LSM has been organized this year in Bordeaux from 6th to 11th of July,
2010 by a set of local LUGs and organizations with the help of several
public and private sponsors.

About Debian

The Debian Project was founded in 1993 by Ian Murdock to be a truly
free, community project. Since then the project has grown to be one of
the largest and most influential open source projects.  Over three
thousand volunteers from all over the world work together to create and
maintain Debian software. Translated into over 30 languages, and
supporting a huge range of computer types, Debian calls itself the
"universal operating system".
