DebConf Organizers blog
The DebConf blog is back. This time not limited to a running DebConf, but should stay alive forever. (Well, as long as someone feeds it new entries).
There are a few differences compared to our last instance, so lets write a bit about it here:
What should be blogged here, and not in your personal blog? Well, everything, forget your own blog. :) Oh well, no, interesting parts around the whole conference, how’s live at DebConf, including images (small ones - put them into images/. That will appear as /blosxom/ at the blog site. Large ones - consider to put them into the gallery and link them from there). Basically anything thats interesting for DebConf attendees / future attendees. And if it doesnt fit a debconfX/ category, then take general/.
How to blog is also easy. A blog entry is a pure textfile, with two exceptions: The very first line is the title of the entry and the second-line is special and needs to start with “meta-author: ” followed by your name, eg “meta-author: Joerg Jaspert”. That name will then be included in the blog-post, so it is clear who wrote it. Then its basically text, with a few things replaced by helpful plugins:
All blog files are put into the debconf-blog svn on svn.debconf.org.
Now, have fun with it!
