Saturday was an excellent day. There was a gathering at SIPB to work on Debian and try to fix release-critical bugs. I was expecting we might have around 7 people. We had around 30. There is incredible energy in a room of 30 smart people all working on different problems. People were moving around as they finished problems, helping each other learn new skills, and so on. Those of us most familiar with Debian were working on uploads and on helping people understand packaging. Then, later, I spent the evening at an excellent party where I met some great new people and ran into other friends I see infrequently.
