Well, I gather that as a first-time git user I also need to do various
other incantations - the ones it tells me about are 
 git config --global user.name "Justin B Rye"
 git config --global user.email justin.byam.rye@gmail.com
 git commit --amend --reset-author -m "first pass"
 git config --global push.default simple         

> It works for me

Not for me; when I try the "git push", it just says

 fatal: remote error: access denied or repository not exported: /publicity/dpn.git

Maybe I need to roll up one of my trouserlegs?

And now "git diff" tells me that (perhaps because I've "committed" my
changes?) there's no diff, so I can't even attach one here; instead
here's my modified version.

<a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2015/07/msg00005.html";>announced</a>
that the first Alpha version of the installer for Debian 9 <q>Stretch</q>
had been released. Shortly afterward the <a

a quick recap of the beginning of the development cycle of the installer for Stretch, and <a
that the migration to testing of packages producing the special <tt>udeb</tt>
packages used by the installer would be frozen just before the release of
a new version of the installer. He also asks the maintainers of packages
with potential changes to the installer for coordination through the

<toc-add-entry name="gcc5">Bits from the release Team: GCC5 as default, transition thereof</toc-add-entry>
Jonathan Wilstshire sent a <a
about the way package maintainers can help the transition to GCC5 and
libstdc++6, which can be tracked on the 
<a href="https://release.debian.org/transitions/";>transition tracker</a>. They
are asked to defer uploads to unstable where possible, unless they are
related to this transition - for example, fixing a FTBFS with GCC5, or other
RC bugs to unblock migration, or related to the <a href="http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?tag=libstdc%2B%2B-cxx11;users=debian-gcc@lists.debian.org";>libstdc++ follow-up transitions</a>.
They are welcome to work in experimental in the meantime.
Matthias Klose focused on the transition <a
the libstdc++6 ABI</a> with an emphasis on what should be done, or not!

<toc-add-entry name="perl">Bits from Perl maintainers: Transition to Perl 5.22</toc-add-entry>

Niko Tyni <a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2015/08/msg00010.html";>announced</a> a Perl transition to Perl 5.22. expected in the
next couple of months. Perl 5.22 packages have been in experimental since
June, and the list of blockers is <a
href="https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?tag=perl-5.22-transition;users=debian-perl@lists.debian.org";>getting shorter</a>.
Some changes occurred in the organisation of the binary packages built from
src:perl version 5.22 in experimental to allow for keeping older versions of
libperl5.xx installable, and for marking them Multi-Arch:same so that they
can be co-installed for multiple architectures. In order not to increase the
number of packages, the non-essential parts of the standard library have been
integrated into the libperl5.xx package. As a side effect, installing
libperl5.xx now installs the full Perl standard library.

The <a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2015/08/msg00007.html";>Wanna
Build team met</a> at DebCamp welcoming Joachim Breitner as a new member.   
They quickly got to work on getting arch:all packages buildable with their 
autobuilders, and they remind developers that they are <a href="https://lists.debian.org/debian-wb-team/";>available</a> if a package
does not make it through the ftp-master archive. The team continuted work on 
merging buildd.debian-ports.org into buildd.debian.org, and did a front end 
update to the <a href="https://buildd.debian.org/status/";>buildd status pages</a>. 

The team also focused on rsync based uploads from the buildds, upgraded their 
autobuilders to Jessie and discussed package archives for project members.  The 
team plans to work on cross build dependencies, workflow regarding communication
between the autobuilders, and working toward stateless autobuilders. 

The team gives special thanks to the DSA and ftp-master teams.

Raphael Hertzog <a href="https://raphaelhertzog.com/2015/07/31/my-free-software-activities-in-july-2015/";>reported</a> on 15 hours of paid support working on Debian LTS and 
his jump ahead to the future to work on Kali Linux / Debian Stretch. The work 
with Kali Linux is to parallel Debian Constantly Usable Testing with a rolling 
release cycle and snapshot for every 4 months toward 3 releases per year. Bugs 
closed on the Kali side of work benefited Debian with improvements to APT, 
upstream requests for nvidia drivers, and the investigation of a schroot 
issue.   In his other time Raphael sponsored packages, uploaded his own
packages, and worked on the Distro Tracker.
