Correction // Bits from Debian Privacy Tools Maintainers

Hi,

I'm sorry, but I'd like to repropose the news, without it being in the
name of the Privacy Tools Team, I hope you don't mind.

Here is the new text.

=================================================================

Bits from Tails

We are happy to announce that Tails Installer [1] is now in Debian.

Tails Installer is a graphical tool [2] to install or upgrade Tails on a
USB stick from an ISO image. It aims at making it easier to get The
Amnesic Incognito Live System up and running for those not familiar with
the command line.

It's the only installation technique that allows you to:
- Benefit from automatic upgrades.
- Create an encrypted persistent storage for your personal
files and settings in the rest of the available space.

The package is maintained by Debian Privacy Tools Maintainers. [3]

www.debian.org: Decide a place where to store logos so services can hotlink there

Hi all
I've added the folder:

https://anonscm.debian.org/viewvc/webwml/webwml/english/Pics/hotlink/

to the website, now hosting the "usual" logos; so the Publicity team 
and/or website team can change them to the ones with black ribbon or 
whatever is needed.

Once the site is rebuilt and I see that they are visible in the 
internet, I'll propose patches to change the website to link here, and 
send another message to the services admins for the case they need 
different sizes/formats or they want to hotlink to 
https://www.debian.org/Pics/hotlink/[choose_file.png]

It might be worth mentioning the work being done on moving to GCC 6.
I can write something up if you want.

Mini-DebConf Curitiba 2016

Hi all,

The Brazilian Debian Community to will promote a Mini-DebConf edition in
Curitiba. We would like to see the announcement below in the next DPN.
The suggested text is:

The Brazilian community of users and Debian developers invites everyone
to participate in the Mini-DebConf Curitiba 2016 that will be held on
March 5th and 6th at Aldeia Coworking in Curitiba - Parana.

The Mini-DebConf Curitiba 2016 is a meeting open to all, regardless of
their level of knowledge about Debian. The most important is to gather
the community to celebrate the biggest Free Software project in the
world, so we want to welcome from inexperienced users to official Debian
Developers.

The program of Mini-DebConf Curitiba 2016 will consist of basic and
intermediate level lectures for those participants who will have their
first contact with Debian or want to know more about certain subjects,
and intermediate and advanced level workshops for Debian users who want
to get their hands dirty during the meeting.

The subscription to the Mini-DebConf 2016 Curitiba is completely free of
charge and can be made using the form available on the meeting website.
Prior registration is important for us to plan it according to the
number of participants.

Short tribute video in honor of Ian Murdock in FOSDEM


Dear all

We, the Debian Publicity team, are trying to prepare a short tribute
video in honour of Ian Murdock to be screened at FOSDEM[1] (Free and
Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting), that will take
place in Brusels next January 30-31.
Valessio Brito and yours truly have offered time to prepare it.

The video would be released with the same license as the Debian
website[2] if possible, or in any other free license.

If you have any  material (photos, audio, video) that you own (or it's
free licensed) and we could use in the video, it would be great if you
can share it.

Please, commit your files with their license before Friday 22 January
2016 12:00 UTC to this git repo:
https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/publicity/ian-media.git

This repository is world readable and only  writable for all Debian
Developers (DD). if you're not a DD, please, ask a DD to commit your
files for you or join #debian-publicity and ask us for help there.

Debian Fluxbox Pure Blend

Hello, I'm helping to develop a Debian Fluxbox Pure Blend. This will
be a full install offering the very lightweight windows manager
Fluxbox as an alternative to the Gnome/KDE/LXDE/MATE/Xfce desktop
environments currently being offered.

It is ideal for thin clients, old hardware, laptops and any system
where conserving resources is an issue. It is a fun desktop that is
highly configurable.

Project page is:

Mailing list is:

Thanks!
