Debian and GitLab Open Source Partnership

Dear all,

Debian and GitLab have been in discussion regarding an Open Source
Partnership toward which we will jointly produce mutual promotions,
shared stories, and announcements using both organizations press and/or
publicity channels.

There are several segments for this upcoming and future endeavor which
include a few requests from them on: How Debian uses GitLab for a case
study, some highlighting and promotion from us regarding their upcoming
GitLab Commit 2021 Conference, mutual support with media (peertube for
example), and a hand in hand expansion of both our press/publicity
networks to promote each others work where applicable.

One of the first items we are sharing is that GitLab has committed to a
Silver level sponsorship for #DebConf21, and Debian will be listed as an
Open Source Partner at their upcoming conference: GitLab Commit 2021.
More info and registration (free of cost) at

With the sponsorship arrangement we are able to have a virtual booth at
the GitLab Commit Conference (#GitLabCommit) which runs from 4:00AM PDT,
August 3rd, 2021 through 11:59PM PDT, August 4th, 2021.

    With many apologies for the short notice, we ask any Debian
Developers and Contributors who have available time if they would be
willing to assist in getting our booth up and running. The easiest and
quickest setup for us would be to select a series of slides that can
play on their main video player and a call button that will link to our
very own website. There are certain hours during August 3rd and 4th
where attendees are encouraged to visit the virtual booths so there's
possibility to schedule live sessions or chat too.

Interested people please contact us in #debian-publicity or
debian-publicity@lists.debian.org for more details.

Be Well,
