Debian project leader elected
-----------------------------

The Debian project has just reelected Stefano Zacchiroli for a third year as
Debian Project Leader [1]. More than 80% of voters put him as their first
choice (or equal first) on their ballot papers.

  1 : http://www.debian.org/News/2012/20120415

Stefano's large majority over his opponents shows how satisfied the Debian
project is with his work so far, and its wish for him to represent the project
during one last term — Stefano has already announced he won't be seeking
reelection again next year. Wouter Verhelst and Gergely Nagy also gained a lot
of support from Debian project members, both coming hundreds of votes ahead of
the "None of the above" ballot choice.

Registration open for DebConf12
-------------------------------

The Debian project is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the
DebConf12 [2] conference, which will take place in Managua, Nicaragua, from
Sunday 8 July to Saturday 14 July 2012. The conference will be preceded as
usual by a week-long DebCamp, from Sunday 1 July to Saturday 7 July. It will
only be possible to apply for food and accommodation grants and/or travel
grants until 15 May.

Debian also invites submissions of proposals [3] for papers, presentations,
discussion sessions and tutorials for DebConf12 until 1 June 2012.

Personal BSP initiatives
------------------------

We usually give information about BSPs where a group of people meet over a
weekend, but today we'd like to mention two personal initiatives. Gregor
Herrmann has reported every [4] week [5] over [6] ten [7] Release-Critical bugs
squashed. Gerfried Fuchs also regularly reports on stable Release-Critical bugs
squashed, and has managed to squash over [8] thirty [9] bugs [10] each month.
We would like to thank Gregor Herrmann, Gerfried Fuchs and all other RC bug
addicts who are constantly helping to make our distribution better.

The state of Debian s390x
-------------------------

Philipp Kern posted an update on the current state of the Debian s390x port
[11]. Work started on this port last summer, during DebConf11 [12], and in less
than a month it already had almost 65% of packages built. Unfortunately, a new
GLib release created some problems on this architecture; but recently a new
major release of GLib [13] fixed all the issues. The next steps for this port
will be to fix open bugs [14] and to make Iceweasel build successfully.

Interviews
----------

Raphaël Hertzog published a "People behind Debian" interview with Francesca
Ciceri [15], a member of the Debian press and publicity teams, while Petter
Reinholdtsen interviewed Wolfgang Schweer [16], Justin B Rye [17] and Andreas
Mundt [18] for his "Debian Edu interviews" series.

Other news
----------

Guido Günther sent out some bits from the fifth Debian Groupware Meeting [19],
which was held at the Linux Hotel in Essen, Germany. During the weekend the
group fixed various issues and was able to push new versions of icedove [20]
and d-push [21] to "unstable" while iceowl [22] (dead upstream) remains in
"experimental". Some work was also done on OpenChange, Zarafa ZCP and SOGo,
and several evolution bugs [23] were worked on.

Michael Larabel did some benchmarks to compare Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, Debian
GNU/Linux and FreeBSD/PC-BSD 9.0 [24] on a dual AMD Opteron 2384 system with 4
GB of RAM and a 160 GB Western Digital SATA drive. It appears that Linux is
generally faster than kFreeBSD for now, but kFreeBSD won on a few tests. For
more details, you can consult the complete results page [25].

Release-Critical bugs statistics for the upcoming release
---------------------------------------------------------

According to the Bugs Search interface of the Ultimate Debian Database [40],
the upcoming release, Debian "Wheezy", is currently affected by 726
Release-Critical bugs. Ignoring bugs which are easily solved or on the way to
being solved, roughly speaking, about 517 Release-Critical bugs remain to be
solved for the release to happen.

There are also some hints on how to interpret [41] these numbers.
