### fsmithred * deepsea, cinnabar and darkpurpy icon themes modified to replace xfce-4.16 panel icons with more appropriate colors for the themes. * live-config updated to match new debian version
## New Business * (fsr) Posted in #devuan-dev channel this morning: * (blueness via IRC) Hi everyone, I'm the upstream maintainer of eudev and I want to give it away. I originally forked it for gentoo/musl but now we have systemd + openembedded patchs working in musl. I have no need to maintain it or time. Its in pretty good shape with just a few bugs, but does require someone with the expertise to understand the code. * (plasma41) I was recently poking around with eudev and AFAICT the current version of eudev is forked from a version systemd/udev before a rework of u2f/fido token support that I was wanting to use. I am a complete novice with the codebase, but I'd like to take a crack at updating eudev's udev code to a version after the u2f/fido rework. * migration escapades: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=4452 * wicd - we can has port? * spec and fund something new, or a port to Python 3? * Hendrik will explore and report whether he feels out of his depth.
### LeePen We have house guests, so I may not make the meeting tonight. Apologies. * gnu_srs said on IRC that he will update eudev this week to fix #589 and #600 That will complete the packaging for chimaera that I know about. Note that now Debian has released Bullseye, our normal build route ceres->chimaera will rapidly become unworkable as unstable receives updated packages. * I am working on a script to identify missing initscripts. My idea is to hook it into sysv-rc. Then we can at least warn the user and/or invoke sysd2v.sh to generate the missing initscript. * Added accessibility notes from Greg Nowak to the [chimaera Release Notes pad](https://pad.dyne.org/code/#/2/code/edit/zrwXb4YnOlmO6fy2mPq4AsmR/). * Will set up chimaera-backports and daedalus in amprolla this weekend.
### golinux * Time to decide the release codename for Devuan 6.0. We had this discussion on 2020-12-17: * Musing on [potential names for Devuan 6.0](https://minorplanetcenter.net/iau/lists/MPNames.html#E). Previous releases: Jessie, ASCII, Beowulf, Chimaera, Daedalus 1. [Excalibur](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Excalibur) (golinux really likes this one) (plasma) I also really like this one. (Xenguy) +1 2. Einstein 3. ~Elektra~ (the crazy lady? Really?) Greek mythology. Electra daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra. Also (with a "k") Alban Berg and Strauss operas (I'd totally forgotten that Strauss did it too). 4. ~Enterprise~ (ugh - too commercial) * (Beer) Commercial? Enterprise is also the name of the flagship in the Star Trek franchise, calling for adventure in "uncharted territories". This would underline the amazing and courageous endavour of forking a major distribution ()by those who allowed it to exist and made it in the first place) to set free from poor decisions with high impact. 5. Eureka (We had that moment in 2014) 6. Everest (Please let it be easier than that.) uninspiring. Also too similar to Europe) 7. (Xenguy) Newly added: [Eris](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eris_(mythology)) (but careful what you wish for) * Eris (Ερις) is the goddess of discord and strife. Her parents are different depending on the myth; in some myths she is the daughter of Zeus and Hera while in other myths she is the daughter of Erebos and Nyx, or sometimes Nyx alone. Eris is the primary deity of the religion of [Discordianism](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discordianism) and the namesake of the dwarf planet Eris. * (mason) A host of thumbs up! * https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Eris * https://www.theoi.com/Daimon/Eris.html * https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EFnet 8. (Hendrik) '[Edda](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edda)' isn't bad either. A different mythology from the usual Graeco-Roman one. And if we want to challenge keyboard users, 'Eötvös'. 9. (Adam) [Euphrosyne](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphrosyne) (in contrast to Eris). In some accounts, Euphrosyne was a daughter of the primordial gods, Erebus (Darkness) and Nyx (Night). Euphrosyne is a Goddess of Good Cheer, Joy and Mirth. 10. (rrq) [Egal](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egal) 11. (mason) [Eratosthenes](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eratosthenes) 12. (Beer) [Epistrophos](https://www.behindthename.com/name/epistrophos/submitted): On a rope, escaping in a hurry (from the PID 1 bloatware prison/danger)? * Note to Xenguy . . . This bit of info will need to be added to https://www.devuan.org/os/releases when the page is updated for the Chimaera release
### Hendrik * Is there a piece of documentation somewhere advising how to get out of trouble halfway through an upgrade? If so, I'd like to link to it. What *I* do if I'm stuck is to post a message to the dng list. There should be something less intrusive. * The covert conflict. I encountered two packages which conflicted, but were not properly declared to conflict. dpkg refused to deal with the mess and the apt* utilities had no idea what to do. I should probably report this as a bug to Debian after checking the details on their packages site? * Is there a recommended (and securely written) markdown processor? The one I use (omd) doesn't handle triple tilde's properly. * (Xenguy) I could only find 2 in the Beowulf software repo, i.e. `Pandoc` (looks decent) and `Markdown` (looks lacking). * (gl) I've always done it the old-fashioned way - in a text editor. Same for html . . .
