IRILL - Research and Innovation on Free Software

Debian Release Team meeting at IRILL

Debian Release Team meeting at
IRILL{.image-inline .c4}IRILL is pursuing a rather ambitious goal: finding and establishing synergies among researchers, industries, and communities who share a common interest in Free Software. In doing so, IRILL does not want to miss chances to support FOSS communities with its resources, in order to give something back to the members of such communities who enthusiastically contribute to Free Software projects. IRILL believes that organizing community meetings is a sensible way to help Free Software and will start doing so since the very beginning of IRILL activities.

We are hereby happy to announce that IRILL will sponsor and host a Debian Release Team Meeting on October 2nd and 3rd, in its INRIA premises in Paris. The Debian Release Team is busy finalizing the next Debian release, codenamed Debian Squeeze. We are grateful for their work and for that of all members of the Debian community. If you are a Debian enthusiast as we are at IRILL, stay tuned on the usual Debian channels for more information about the meeting and on how to help the release of Debian Squeeze.
