Debian GNU/Minix

,----[ Quote ]
| Finally someone has seen the light and started a project that I called for in
| a previous article. This melding of the Minix kernel with the GNU userland is
| called Preventa, and seems to poke fun at the name Nexenta, a similar project
| using the Solaris kernel, all in good fun I’m sure, considering that the
| project leader’s blog is called “La Salle Debain” (a play on “Debian” and the
| French for “bathroom”).

Better mentors.debian.net/REVU to improve our sponsorship workflow?

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently sponsored several uploads, and was asked to sponsor even more
| uploads, and that got me thinking about our sponsorship workflow. It’s a
| clear bottleneck in Debian, and discourages many new contributors, which
| obviously sucks.
