Debian Teams

Sunday 13:30 - 14:15 PDT
Not Attending GRUB, ancient and modern -- Colin Watson
Speaker: Colin Watson
GRUB has moved on a great deal from its beginnings, when most of us just used it over LILO because you didn't have to remember to reinstall your boot loader when you installed a new kernel. Nowadays, thanks in part to the work of several Debian developers, it's a very powerful boot loader ported to many architectures that's actually fun to hack on. I'll be giving a whistle-stop tour of its history and design, and laying out some of the things where the Debian GRUB team could do with help.

Not Attending Status of the Debian OpenPGP keyring -- Gunnar Wolf
Speaker: Gunnar Wolf
The Debian OpenPGP keyring is a vital part of the project's infrastructure: It provides a secure way to ensure each participant's identity in a way amenable to the geographically distributed nature of the project, and is used for basically all actions requiring authentication — Package uploads, General Resolution votes, mails to the =-announce= lists, etc. For several years already, the keyring maintenance team has been pushing to migrate to more secure keys. In July 2010, the last PGPv3 keys were replaced. The current push is to get developers to migrate from older 1024D keys to (at least) 4096R keys. In this talk, we want to: - Introduce keyring-maint's work processes and policies, to get them better understood by the overall Debian community - Present the migration process to stronger keys in numbers, highlighting the migration rhythm and possible issues - Delineate a consensuated migration plan, with deadlines to be followed, to allow for a complete migration to 4096R and higher keys - Reviewing, as a group, what constitutes proper identification and what we require. - Address all of your questions regarding keyring maintenance in Debian

Speaker: Daniel Kahn Gillmor
GnuPG is a critical part of debian infrastructure. Upcoming changes to GnuPG may have significant impact on debian. This will be a convening of people involved with debian packaging of GnuPG and its related tools, and an attempt to plan for the future. Some topics for discussion: * Making gpg an alternative that can be gpg1 or gpg2 * Thoughts on making the default gpg be gpg2 (or gpg 2.1?) * More shared maintenance via pkg-gnupg. * cross-building and gpg's place in bootstrapping debian
