Debian Artwork: Call for Proposals for Debian 10 (Buster)Sun 17 June 2018 by Jonathan Carter with tags artwork buster cfp debian
This is the official call for artwork proposals for the Buster cycle.
For the most up to date details, please refer to the wiki.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Juliette Taka Belin for doing the Softwaves theme for stretch.
The deadlines for submissions is: 2018-09-05
The artwork is usually picked based on which themes look the most:
- ''Debian'': admittedly not the most defined concept, since everyone has their own take on what Debian means to them.
- ''plausible to integrate without patching core software'': as much as we love some of the insanely hot looking themes, some would require heavy GTK+ theming and patching GDM/GNOME.
- ''clean / well designed'': without becoming something that gets annoying to look at a year down the road. Examples of good themes include Joy, Lines and Softwaves.
If you'd like more information, please use the Debian Desktop mailing list.

DebConf20 in a cruiseSun 01 April 2018 by Debian Publicity Team with tags debian announce debconf
The last editions of DebConf, the annual Debian conference, have been in unalike places like Heidelberg (Germany), Cape Town (South Africa) and Montreal (Canada). Next summer DebConf18 will happen in Hsinchu (Taiwan) and the location for DebConf19 is already decided: Curitiba (Brazil). During all these years an idea has been floating in the air (aka the Debian IRC channels) about organising a DebConf in a cruise. Today, the Debian Project is happy to announce that a group of Debian contributors have teamed-up to propose an actual bid for DebConf20 in a cruise.
The Cruise Team is confident about their ability to provide a detailed and strong bid by the end of the year. However, a brief plan and preparation is already done: the conference would happen in July and August 2020, during a trip around the world in a "rolling conference" scheme. This means that Debian contributors could choose when to arrive and leave by embarking/disembarking in one of the harbours the boat will stop. A DebCamp focused in sprinting the development of Debian blends and an "Open Day" with install parties under the sea and other interesting activities for the wide public is also planned.
There will be a sprint to discuss the bid details during DebConf18 in Hsinchu. The team has also initiated conversations with several cruise ship companies and satellite network providers in order to explore the possible venues and connectivity options for the conference. Interested parties can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to join the Cruise Team in the preparation of the future conference.
