The Debian Project is pleased to announce that registration is now open for DebConf12, which will take place in Managua, Nicaragua, from Sunday 8 July to Saturday 14 July 2012. The conference will be preceded as usual by one week of DebCamp, from Sunday 1 July to Saturday 7 July. It will only be possible to apply for food and accommodation grants and/or travel grants until 15 May.
Debian also invites submissions of proposals for papers, presentations, discussion sessions and tutorials for its DebConf12 conference until 1 June 2012.
We usually give information about BSPs where a group of people meet over a weekend, but today we'd like to mention a personal initiative: Gregor Herrmann has reported every week over ten Release-Critical bugs squashed. Gerfried Fuchs also regularly reports on stable Release-Critical bugs squashed: she has managed to squash over thirty bugs each month. We would like to thank Gregor Herrmann, Gerfried Fuchs and all other RC Bugs addicts who are constantly helping to make our distribution better.
