Bits from the DPL
Bits from Debian

Hi, Keeping my promise for monthly bits, here's a quick snapshot of my first ten days as DPL. Special thanks to Jonathan for an insightful introduction that left less room for questions. His introduction covered my first tasks like expense approval and CTTE member appointments thoroughly. Although I made a visible oversight by forgetting to exclude Simon McVittie from the list, whose term has ended , I'm committed to learning from this mistake.

Dear Debianites This morning I decided to just start writing Bits from DPL and send whatever I have by 18:00 local time. Here it is, barely proof read, along with all it's warts and grammar mistakes! It's slightly long and doesn't contain any critical information, so if you're not in the mood, don't feel compelled to read it! == Get ready for a new DPL! == Soon, the voting period will start to elect our next DPL, and my time as DPL will come to an end.
