    Unlike a lot of the events that I discuss in my Blog, the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit is a "by invitation only" event with a twist.

    Whistleblowers have accused Transcanada, the company behind the Keystone XL pipeline, of doing faulty work on pipelines and covering it up.

    This is why the Keystone XL pipeline poses a high threat of local damage from leaks, as well as a threat to all civilization from burning the oil that would be shipped through it.

    Debian Project News

  • Reports - Andreas Tille posted the DebianMed Sprint report, detailing the fifth sprint collaboration between the DebianMed team, BioLinux, developers, and users. The event was a great showcase for the Blends concept which also attracted new team members. Several packages were uploaded and accepted immediately at the sprint, thanks to the ftpmaster team, which meant work could continue on chains of dependencies without interruption. More reports and information about the work by M. Crusoe on screed, S. Steinbiss on barrnap, Tim Booth on khmer, and other contributors is available on the DebianMed 2015 Sprint Wiki.
  • The newsletter for the Debian community - Debian LTS work continues with Raphaël Hertzog working 14.5 hours on the project. His highlights include a helper script to generate emails to package maintainers. Michael Banck worked under sponsorship to keep PostgreSQL updated for LTS, Ben Hutchings uploaded packages for cups and sudo, and Thorsten Alteholz worked 14.5 hours uploading new versions of php5, krb5, and e2fsprogs.
  • A delegation for the Trademark Team - We welcome the announcement of an official delegation for the Trademark team. The team worked previously in an unofficial capacity as volunteers under the DPL and were responsible for Debian trademark requests and for reporting violations. Recently the team has completed the process of registering Debian's swirl in the U.S. They are now moving forward to international marks. Although the team will still work closely with the Debian Project Leader and Software in the Public Interest, the delegation means the team now functions on its own in its responsibility for trademark use requests, new registrations, updates, and extensions of Debian trademarks.
