GNU Spotlight with Karl Berry: 32 new GNU releases!
To get announcements of most new GNU releases, subscribe to the info-gnu mailing list: https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/info-gnu. Nearly all GNU software is available from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/, or preferably one of its mirrors (https://www.gnu.org/prep/ftp.html). You can use the url http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/ to be automatically redirected to a (hopefully) nearby and up-to-date mirror.
I'd like to welcome Gaganjyot as the new maintainer of Dr. Geo, Avneet Kaur as the new maintainer of GNU libffcall, and Thad Meyer as the new maintainer of GNU rottlog, as well as Pratik Bhoir as a new-comaintainer for GNU gnats. Thanks everyone.
The GNU Hackers Meeting for 2013 is scheduled to take place from August 22 to August 25 in Paris, France. More information at https://www.gnu.org/ghm/2013/paris/.
A number of GNU packages, as well as the GNU operating system as a whole, are looking for maintainers and other assistance. Please see https://www.gnu.org/server/takeaction.html#unmaint if you'd like to help. The general page on how to help GNU is at https://www.gnu.org/help/help.html. To submit new packages to the GNU operating system, see https://www.gnu.org/help/evaluation.html.
As always, please feel free to write to me, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any GNUish questions or suggestions for future installments.
