Debian Weekly News - March 29th, 2001
Welcome to Debian Weekly News, a newsletter for the Debian community.
And the winner is ... Ben Collins. Congratulations to our new Debian Project Leader, and thanks to all the candidates for volunteering. Here is Ben's acceptance message. Details about the result of the vote are here. Note that elsewhere, full details of who voted for what were accidentally posted; DPL votes are not supposed to be made public, but it was an honest mistake.
This is the last edition of Debian Weekly News for a while. There are several reasons to stop publication:
- DWN's editor is preparing for a cross-country move, and won't have time for the next month to prepare the newsletter.
- After two years of weekly publication, it's becoming quite a strain to maintain a consistent level of quality in the newsletter. Posting intervals have already become somewhat sporadic, and content of late has been thin. This is not due to any lack of activity in Debian to report on, but rather due to one person becoming a bit jaded with reporting on the project.
Publication may restart in May, or this may be the last edition of DWN. Whatever happens, Debian news continues to be available from other sources: Kernel Cousin Debian, Debian Planet, and even Linux Weekly News. Rather than reopen, it may make better sense for Debian Weekly News to merge with one of the above news sources. Your comments and suggestions are welcome, and thank you for reading Debian Weekly News!
