View Full Version : Ubuntu Backports Weekly News, Issue #1

For your reading pleasure, I've decided to take the time to update you guys weekly on my progress with backports. If this is too frequent, it may become bi-weekly in the future.

Very nice, btw, the server seemed... out... of... it... this morning.... but it's better now...

How can i take part in the backports project?

Thanks. The server issues, I alluded to in the news article:

Into the future:
SF.Net is coming out with some 'exciting new FRS enhancements', which means our APT repository will have to be transitioned into this new system. Watch for project news next week, when this system is expected to be rolled out!

The greatest way you can help are:

1. Telling me what you want backported.
2. Watching the Hoary/Sid trees, telling me when there's newer backports
3. Testing the -staging updates, so I can safely move them into stable every week. Feedback can be filed in the form of a bug report.
