Report from Debian Med Sprint


this is the report about my work at Debian Med sprint[1] ten days ago in
Schönberger Strand.  If you are interested in Sprints in general you
might be interested in work item 2. below.

 1. Wrote draft article[2] for Indian health care magazin.  If you might
    like to proofread the article I'd be very happy (it is not yet to late
    for changes. (You can find a PDF version here[3])

 2. I have given a short talk proving the importance of sprints.  The
    slides[4] are basically graphs and I try to prove that sprints are a
    really good idea.  The background knowledge is that the Debian Med
    team is doing sprints since 2011 and looking at all graphs you can
    see that this has a really positive effect.  Thanks to Debian and
    its sponsors for supporting this kind of sprints.

 3. Packaging
    * Worked with T. Travis on flexbar and uploaded the package to new
    * Worked with Ch. Gille on strapbase and uploaded the package to new
    * Discussed strategy how to strip glam2 source from meme upstream
      with T. Booth.  Meme upstream agreed to keep the original license
      of Glam2 and backport the changes from Meme source archive[7]
    * Discussed igv packaging issues with O. Sallou who updated the
      package and documented some issues about its dependency goby[8]
    * Worked together with I. Maintz on cellprofiler
    * Worked together with I. Maintz on a couple of R packages which
      are mostly predependencies but also one Debian Med primary
      target was uploaded to new[9]

 4. Discussing / chatting
    * Some chat with Ch. Steigies (Debian Games, Debian m68k, Debian
    * Discussion with M. Banck about DebiChem 

 5. Little bit of MoM mentoring[10]

 6. Maintain Debian Med tasks files about newly commited packages of
    other sprint participants

 7. General infrastucture issues
    * Issues with machine-readable files importer into UDD
    * Try to revive PET data in UDD
    * Work on installation of future blends.debian.net host (install
      needed packages, create UDD clone) 

Thanks to all participants of the sprint and specifically to Steffen
Möller who took over the work of organising.  It was fun to meet you all
and I'm even looking right now forward to the next sprint hopefully
beeing able to continue the graphing of positive results of sprints in
our team metrics.

We had some nice food, not so nice weather and from my perspective the
only drawback was that at home there would have been perfect conditions
for skiing ... but finally there are preferences. ;-)

See you at next sprint
