<toc-add-entry name="pointrelease">Update for Debian 6.0: 6.0.6 released</toc-add-entry>

The sixth <a href="$(HOME)/News/2012/20120929">update for
Debian 6.0 (codenamed <q>Squeeze</q>)</a> has been released. This update
mainly adds corrections of security problems to the stable release,
along with some adjustments for serious problems.

<toc-add-entry name="BSP">Reports from the last BSPs</toc-add-entry>

The <a href="http://beta.howtorecognise.mine.nu/blog/Dublin_BSP.html";>bug
squashing party held in Dublin</a> on Saturday, 8 September,
was hosted on Google office space and gathered 15 people.
It triggered the bootstrap of a local Debian community and the envy to
hold a second one on October on top of acting on Release-Critical bugs.
The following weekend, another
<a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-events-eu/2012/09/msg00008.html";>bug
squashing party held in Berlin</a> gathered approximately 25 people who also
worked on German translations on top of acting on Release-Critical bugs.

<toc-add-entry name="gsoc">Results from Debian's Google Summer of Code</toc-add-entry>

Ana Guerrero sent a
<a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2012/09/msg00011.html";>report
about Debian's Google Summer of Code</a>. Debian has been participating in the
Google Summer of Code since 2006, and proposed this year 15 projects, among which 12
finished successfully.

Students supervised by Debian mentors worked on various aspects of the project:
improvements of mentors.debian.net, development of multi-arch cross-toolchains,
metrics of team activities, just to name a few. Some of these results are
already included in Debian.

The Debian project thanks the persons who took part in it, and especially the
students for their contributions, and invites them to continue being involved
in making Debian better.
