Using Debian Money to Fund Debian Projects

Speakers: Mehdi Dogguy Raphaƫl Hertzog

Type: BoF (45 mins)

Room: Menzies 12

Time: Jul 08 (Fri), 14:00

With Debian LTS, we are now offering something that users expected for a long time and we are keeping users that we lost to Ubuntu in the past. Debian LTS would not exist without the work of paid contributors and the financial support of its sponsors.

Can we learn what we got right in Debian LTS and try to see how we could use money to improve other parts of Debian? In this BoF, we will make some propositions and expect the audience to react to them, highlighting what is good and what is problematic, making suggestions on how to fix/improve the propositions. The Debian Project Leader is a central role in the way Debian spends his money. He will thus take an active role in this discussion.
