Why Debian?

One of the things that but have asked to me during these last years is because I use Debian like my favorite distro. There are many definitions and reasons, but I found in one of the many sites that I have visited and that defined perfectly my because:

“Good, it is necessary to understand that Debian, like Linux, has a politician motivation with deep roots in the social movements of the sixties, that is to say, (and it is) it was done by engineer hippies of the alternative. Whereas for many users of Mandrake or Redhat Linux it is only an efficient and reliable operating system that is used from 9 to 18 hours, for “debians” use Linux it comprises of a very personal position for the society and the life. In short, if you are somebody that always has had problems with the authority, frequently questions “why” in situations that are everybody seems obvious to him and it does not please the idea to you to vegetate in a gray world and boring, surely always you have been a Debian but until now you know it”

When I read it, finally I understood what felt, which thought. Use Debian for me is a thought position, is a life form.

Debian QA

The last weeks I worked on Debian QA. The goal of Quality Assurance (QA) is to improve Debian where it is needed. Specifically on RC Bugs.

The last weeks I was focused just on my packages but the QA is a very important job to keep to Debian how the better Linux distro on the world.

I have done QA job before (writing man pages or sending some patches), but I decided to do more. First, I chose what kind of bugs I can to solve. I’m a C and C++ expert so I decided to choose some bugs related to those languages.

I focused on the main branch because is the Debian core.
