Debian Cloud Team is there for over 3 years. Our main goal is to maintain official Debian images for the cloud and some cloud-related packages. During this period we have achieved many improvements but we still have a lot of work to do and things to discuss.
Cloud environment changes rapidly which does not always fit Debian release model. In order to cope with some of these changes and better support our users in cloud environments, we’ve been lately changing the team structure and some processes. We’re getting more formalized, taking more responsibilities and cooperating more with SPI.
We’d like to present to the wider public what we already did and our current and next steps, and what we have in store for the Buster release! We’d also like to collect feedback from the Debian community as it is really important and should help us in making decisions for the future of Debian in the Cloud.
It’s time to finish the show!
Let’s say goodbye to Curitiba.
Welcome to Curitiba! Opening Ceremony for DebConf19, practical information, and all sorts of Q&A.
In this session we will introduce Open Day, give practical information, and have an open Q&A, addressing the rest of the day as well as DebConf proper which starts the next day.
The Ruby team maintains over 1500 packages in Debian. I have been active in the Ruby team for a while now. And I believe that we, the Ruby team, as a whole, can improve on a lot of things, like, sponsoring new contributor’s packages, taking sessions, etcetera.
During the BOF session, I’d be discussing a few topics like them, which would encourage more new contributors to join the team and help us in the maintenance of all the gems and applications.
Moreover, something that worries me is the “retainment rate” of the new contributors. If this continues, then after few years down the line, the Ruby team would be in a little trouble. There are a lot of packages under the team and so is the need for more contributors.
And it’d be lovely to have more DMs and DDs emerging out in this process :)
