Last weekend Debian Quebec held a Bug Squashing Party to try to fix some bugs in the upcoming Debian Bullseye.
I wasn't convinced at first, but Tassia's contagious energy and willingness to help organise the event eventually won me over. And — shockers! — it was really fun.
My lightning talk on autopkgtests was well received and a few people decided to
sbuild and enable autopkgtests by default.
Sergio's talk on debuginfod was incredibly interesting. I'm not a C programmer and the live demo made me understand how this service can help making debugging C easier.
Jerome's talk on using Yubikeys to unlock LUKS encrypted drives was also very good! It also served as a reminder that Yubico's product are much more featureful and convenient to use than other Open Hardware/ Free Software hardware tokens. Hopefully that will change as enterprises like Nitrokey and Solokey mature.
