Are there any topics that you'd like to see covered in future sessions? A list of MOTU School session requests can be found here.

  • Two things I'd like to be taught is bash-scripting and how to be a productive memeber of bugsquad, that is triaging, bugreporting and so on, along with some examples and excersises. even though the wiki pages are good in showing this, documentation isnt always a sufficient method of teaching.

  • Getting new software packaged and into Ubuntu and/or Debian.
  • Getting new software into Ubuntu and/or Debian doesn't just involve packaging and uploading the software, but it also involves a certain degree of responsibility for maintaining the software and responding to bug reports once the software is in the repos. I would like someone to give a talk on the processes involved in getting new software into repositories, as well as discuss the responsibilities that come along with getting new software into the repos. j1mc 2009-04-23 03:43:22
