μreport @mx (that means, sadly, gwolf ∉ DebConf15)

<Sigh/>

For the second time since I joined Debian, I missed DebConf. This time, mostly for two completely happy reasons (which have, of course, grown up quite significatively):

But adding to that very important factor, early-to-mid August is possibly the worst date for me to attend DebConf — As that's when we start classes at UNAM, and I really don't want to delegate introducing my class to somebody else (besides it being or not possible).

Life has been quite busy here. Besides starting my seventh semester as a teacher (finally being able to present my book on operating systems to the students!), I also took on teaching two modules for a diploma-course on embedded Linux. I'm co- teaching the "User-space Linux" module together with Gabriel Saldaña, and will teach the "Boot process" module with Sandino Araico. There are many things that should be improved about the covered program, but we are having good fun working our way on it; Gabriel and I have given two (out of six) 6hr sessions each, and have reached the point where it is actually becoming fun :)

As for Debian... I have been doing minimal maintenance work. Answering to some keyring tickets, or taking care of only high-profile important issues. I do not have time to do much. I have been wanting to do some interesting analysis on the evolution of our keyring for several months, but have not had the time to follow it up. Will do at some point, /mehopes.

Anyway... This post is probably just because I need to somehow be there at our community's highest social, technical exchange period in the year. That is, there's not much to report, it's only me waving from home!
