Tokyo Debian Meeting meets Kansai.
On 19th Nov, we had a Debian meeting in Osaka.
approx. 20 people attended.
It was hosted by Osaka Electro-Communication University.
We discussed the homework. The homework was to devise a
question. We discussed about Debian in general.
We discussed differences between Debian, FreeBSD, and
I talked about using sid. There was a mention about
apt-listchanges. People didn't know, but it is possible
to configure apt-listchanges to show the changelog and ask
what the changes are going to be before installation. The
default is just to send an e-mail after the fact, and that
default isn't too useful, when using sid.
I talked about using the BTS. The discussion went into
gory details behind the scenes, and might have been too
deep for the members present.
Iwamatsu talked about packaging. He took cairo-dock as an
example. Naturally, everyone present should now able to
make Debian packages.
Enkai happened in "One's" in Kyobashi. It took 40 minutes
by train to go to Kyobashi from the University site, but
we didn't get people lost, which is good.

It has long been that I'm the sole maintainer.
lool has been active lately, which is a very nice change.
My time is mostly used up by apt-listbugs maintenance these days.
