LXer: Debian delayed as community loses interest


Published at LXer:

The next version of the Linux distribution was due to be released by 4 December, meaning it is already over two weeks late at the time of writing. Now one of Debian's release managers has started pointing his finger at key individuals. In a blog posted on Monday, Andreas Barth wrote, "Some people who used to do good work reduced their involvement drastically. There was nothing I could do about that, and that happened way before I started full-time on release, but on the global picture that still counts."

Since his election, Anthony Towns has done two things controversial with the other developers.

One was the inclusion of Java in the Debian (non-free) repos before it was open-sourced. That one worked out ok when Sun, as Towns said they had agreed, went ahead with the open-sourcing of the product. Towns accomplished that by going behind the backs of the developer community.

The Dunc Tank experiment was a little different. Since it was a non-Debian organization, he didn't need approval by the devopers, but he couldn't control their responses, and it was payback time.

No big deal. Etch will be released shortly, and a new Leader will be in place before long, as well. I think Towns did a good job overall, and that both he and the DDs have learned some things that will pay off in the long run.

Debian Rules!!
