I'm back from II Free Software Festival of Bahia (in Brazil) and did a good time there.

I did a talk about CDD (Custom Debian Distributions) and also meet a lot of good people. :-)

The only bad thing there is the food (I didn't like) and the poor people living without good possibilities in same place where we have a lot of people wasting a lot of money :(

Well, long time since last post. Since last post I did a lot of things and forgot to post here these.

I got my patches for kernel and DAK both included in packages. Also did some other bugfixes in Debian bugs like Debian-BR-CDD project.

On profissional side, well, I did a lot of work to stabilize some things and fix pending issues here. I hope I can comment more about it near ;-)

I got DAK working on Debian-BR-CDD server. Now we are in a good shape for development. I also sent to Joerg, DAK mainatainer, a patch to add whitelist-mail support on it so it doesn't send mail to Debian people by mistake.

Well, another bug in current kernel for sarge have a patch now. I reported it and provide a tested patch to solve. More information can be found here: http://bugs.debian.org/289247

I hope it be apply in next upload so our users can use more pendrivers without problem.
