We need your help now !

February 15th, 2007 edited by lucas

Debian Package of the Day has now been alive again for more than two months. While it has been running quite well until know, we are concerned about the future, since we don’t have any article ready currently, and haven’t received a lot of contributions recently.

We really need *you* to submit articles about the packages you use. If you read Debaday, and haven’t submitted an article yet, you should really feel guilty now. :-) There are still tons of packages one could write about ! You can write about everything: games, sysadmin tools, cool end-user stuff, etc. Please read the Contribute page for more info. We are considering a switch from “two packages per week” to “one package per week” if we don’t receive more submissions soon.

Also, it would be great if we could recruit one or two other “editors”. The job is interesting (the goal is to answer submissions, providing ideas for improvements, and to adjust the last details), and you get to read all the articles in advance. You don’t need to be a native english speaker. Contact us if you are interested.

    I really like the idea of this site.

    No time in the foreseable future to submit a complete article but would like to suggest looking at the package for the 3d game “bzflag”

    You can expect lots of cool screenshots.

    I have a blog which does the same, slightly different while shows examples of certain commands (packages) and illustrate simple usage of it. Is it okay for me to write the same one over here? I will rewrite it in different way , so that it will not be seems like duplicated.
