Hello. Some of you will recall that I got up and gave a lightning talk
about Debian at the closing ceremony of LCA 2014. I mentioned that it
would be nice if the debian-au mailing list were to get up and running
again. As you may know, this has happened. (Thanks to those who helped!)
I have come up with some ideas of what we could use the list for.
Please feel free to reply-to-list with your own suggestions.
+ help find people to maintain packages (also, find mentors)
+ co-ordinate things like the Debian Miniconf at LCA (which sadly
hasn't happened 2008)
+ act as a sort of inter-LUG communications channel*
+ discuss Debian topics related to Australia
+ provide a low-traffic "announce" facility for LCA, since not
everyone can make it but might want to hear some news
+ plan release parties, hackathons and bug-smashing parties
+ share stories of Debian-related shenanigans that are somehow not
suitable for the broader audience on debian-user
+ share blog URLs, etc.
+ discuss creation/update of a wiki page regarding the Australian
So please get in touch with everyone you know who's interested in Debian
in Australia, get them to subscribe at the following page:
Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you.
* It's hard to keep lists of LUGs up-to-date, and this could help keep
members interested when they move and need to find who's in the local
