The good thing about rescheduling…

June 4, 2009

… is that you get two Packaging Training sessions on one day!

Due to a scheduling mistake, Michael Vogt couldn’t make it, so I made it an impromptu Ubuntu Development Q&A session instead (Logs). Our good friend and apt/synaptic/update-manager/…/… maintainer Michael Vogt will talk about Make Your Package Upgrade Correctly at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-classroom on later today!

Make sure you’re there later on! Thanks Michael for giving the session!
