Jumping on the blogging bandwagon — DPL debate over

Last night, the IRC debates for the ongoing DPL elections were held. Having a record number of seven candidates, it was at least from a candidate point of view very chaotic, the time between questions was not enough to both properly answer the questions and also read the responses of the fellow candidates. However, for the public, I guess the tempo was quite okay. I hope it's been an informative event for Developers, even though the nature of such debate doesn't allow for in-depth discussions. See the debian-vote mailinglist for that. Only about 24 hours left to answer questions... need to hurry.

When finally reading though the debate answers now, I noticed Anthony Towns saying:

thanks to the wonders of blogging, there's plenty of opportunity to talk about things in a fun interesting way even when they're not finished, or not important enough to warrant a mailing list post

While I believe there's room for some regular reports on various Debian internal projects like I mentioned in my platform, this made me finally get around to actually creating a blog, something I've been meaning to do for over a year. And of course, I needed to because all the other teletubbies have a blog too!

Anyway, I'm glad the campaigning period is nearly over, so I have more time for such things as a lintian upload, some PTS hacking, or study. And of course decide on my ballot for the DPL voting period.
