Debian birthday

August 16th, 2013 by lucas

This upload was the first one of my very first package in Debian. It was sponsored by Dafydd Harries, who I’ve finally met at DebConf13, and got out of NEW on 2005-08-16. Exactly 8 years ago today. I only realized that yesterday evening, and Debian’s birthday feels even more special to me now. Dafydd, it looks like I owe you a lot! :)

    This story gets better: about seven years after I uploaded this package, I found myself wanting a way to have updates from certain RSS feeds in my inbox, and installed feed2imap, having completely forgotten that I had sponsored it.

    Truly an example of how our gifts to each other are rewarded in surprising ways; please consider any debt amply repaid. :)
