---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to this year's 2nd issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian
community. We would like to thank everyone for his feedback on the last
issue of the Debian Project News! We didn't reckoned a tiny newsletter
would cause such an sensation - we where even mentioned in some print
magazines! So many, many thanks! We'll try our very best to come up and
exceed your expectations!

While visiting Stefano Zacchiroli the www 2008 conference[1] in china Sir
Tim Berners-Lee[2] offered Debian kudos[3] for its well thought-out
encapsulation/packaging of libraries. Paul Wise will close[4] his Debian
user[5] and Debian new contributor[6] surveys on June 1st so that
analysis of the results can begin. Please participate if you haven't done
so, yet.

Welcome to this year's 3rd issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian
community. Steve McIntyre sent a new "Bits from the DPL" mail. A
serious issue in Debians OpenSSL package has been fixed recently.
Debian is discussing about an archive strucure for huge packages.

Bits from the Debian Project Leader
-----------------------------------

Steve McIntyre sent a new release of his "Bits from the DPL"[1] reporting
his recent activities as elected Project Leader. He starts by pointing to
several interviews he gave recently[2][3][4][5][6] and continues by
informing about personal changes in core teams. Jonathan McDowell has
been added as keyring maintainer, and is already working together with
James Troup on easier integration of keyring maintenance and our ldap
system for better cooperation with the Debian System Administrators. He
thanks Anthony Towns, who stepped down from the teams he was in.
