bulmages package.

  Bulmages is a big invoice program that has developed as a project in Iglues organization.
René Merou and I have been working in bulmages package more than one year. And now, at 15 days to release etch, It's ready!

   I've been thinking to wait to Etch is out, but I've decided to upload it. It's not an a package for experimental, so I've uploaded to unstable, but when it is in unstable, I'll report a RC bug to avoid problems with Etch release. Only if Etch is delayed enought (and I don't think so) and if it has enought installations I'll let it enter.

   If the Dunc-Tank project doesn't exist, I'd let it enter Etch, but I don't want anybody say me I've uploaded it to delay Etch.

Debian is difficult?

Yesterday, a friend say me it need help installing its Windows network. I couldn't help him so we stop talking.
This morning, he talked me again and said me he has solved the problem. He took a Debian I've gave him and it detect all and worked perfectly!.

Congratulations to d-i team for the good work!, It has achieved to do Debian installation easiest than Windows XP!!!

Debian art & synfigstudio

Few weeks ago, I began working with Paul Wise (pabs) with Synfig Studio packages, an excellent software to make animations.
I have tested it just one and a half hour with no previous experience and reading the tutorial I ended this animation. (UPDATE: you could get the .sif file too)

There is a complete gallery with a lot of examples.

At the moment we are only four developers working on it, and extra developers working on it should be welcome!

pbuilder / cowbuilder

Build package with pdebuild can be a slow pain... but cowbuilder package could be your aspirin:

With a simple package:

with cowbuilder:
pdebuild --pbuilder cowbuilder ----------> 54 sec.

without cowbuilder:
pdebuild                       ----------> 3 min. 8 sec.

A pretty option to Thunderbird:


It let to set the prefered FQDN in Thunderbird, so the Message-Id is correctly shown in headers instead using the domain in your mail when you use a smtp to relay mails.
