  12.  <title>Decopy - Yet another debian&#x2F;copyright helper</title>
  13.  <link>http://www.marga.com.ar/blog/index.cgi/debian/Decopy.html</link>

  16. &lt;p&gt;As every responsible maintainer should know, having an updated
  17. &lt;code&gt;debian&#x2F;copyright&lt;&#x2F;code&gt; file is very important but can also take a
  18. significant amount of work. A lot of copy &amp; pasting, a lot of manual
  19. corrections, and a lot of opportunity for human errors.&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  20.  
  21. &lt;p&gt;There are several tools that help with this, but they all have their
  22. limitations. &lt;code&gt;decopy&lt;&#x2F;code&gt; is a newly uploaded tool (unfortunately too new
  23. for stretch) that aims to:
  24. &lt;ul&gt;
  25. &lt;li&gt;Detect as many licenses as possible&lt;&#x2F;li&gt;
  26. &lt;li&gt;Parse both text and binary files&lt;&#x2F;li&gt;
  27. &lt;li&gt;Minimize the work needed to keep the debian&#x2F;copyright file up-to-date.&lt;&#x2F;li&gt;
  28. &lt;&#x2F;ul&gt;
  29. &lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  30.  
  31. &lt;h3&gt;How to use it&lt;&#x2F;h3&gt;
  32.  
  33. &lt;p&gt;In order to run it, after apt-get installing it, just go to a source package
  34. directory and run &lt;code&gt;decopy&lt;&#x2F;code&gt; in it.  Depending on the size of the
  35. package, it might take a while (the thorough processing means that a lot of
  36. checking is going on). This will show you the generated
  37. &lt;code&gt;debian&#x2F;copyright&lt;&#x2F;code&gt; file in stdout.  If you want to store it and diff
  38. it against your current copyright file, use &lt;code&gt;decopy --output
  39. &#x2F;tmp&#x2F;copyright&lt;&#x2F;code&gt;.&lt;p&gt;
  40.  
  41. &lt;p&gt;There&#x27;s more documentation in the &lt;a
  42. href=&quot;https:&#x2F;&#x2F;anonscm.debian.org&#x2F;git&#x2F;collab-maint&#x2F;decopy.git&#x2F;tree&#x2F;README.md&quot;&gt;README&lt;&#x2F;a&gt;
  43. file.&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  44.  
  45. &lt;h3&gt;Future changes&lt;&#x2F;h3&gt;
  46.  
  47. &lt;p&gt;More licenses are coming, the intention is to support all licenses listed in
  48. the &lt;a href=&quot;https:&#x2F;&#x2F;spdx.org&#x2F;licenses&#x2F;&quot;&gt;SPDX License List&lt;&#x2F;a&gt;. Additionally,
  49. the analysis will be improved to prioritize looking for the most common licenses
  50. first, avoiding unnecessary delays.&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  51.  
  52. &lt;p&gt;More modes of operation are also coming. We are planning for a diff mode that
  53. shows you only the changes between the current copyright file and what the tool
  54. thinks should be there as well as an explain mode that will let the user know
  55. what the differences are in a more verbose manner.
  56.  
  57. &lt;h3&gt;Credits and source&lt;&#x2F;h3&gt;
  58.  
  59. &lt;p&gt;Decopy was mainly written by Maximiliano Curia. I&#x27;ve added testing,
  60. documentation and packaging.&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  61.  
  62. &lt;p&gt;It&#x27;s hosted in &lt;a
  63. href=&quot;https:&#x2F;&#x2F;anonscm.debian.org&#x2F;git&#x2F;collab-maint&#x2F;decopy.git&#x2F;&quot;&gt;collab-maint&lt;&#x2F;a&gt;,
  64. licensed under the ISC license. We would love to get more contributors for it
  65. :)&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;

  77. 2014&lt;&#x2F;a&gt;, where Debian enthusiasts from far and wide will gather to talk about
  78. the latest Debian changes and the Debian community, as well as to meet new and
  79. old friends.&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  80.  
  81. &lt;p&gt;The MiniDebConf is fast approaching, be sure to make your travel
  82. arrangements! It is going to be an exciting event, in a &lt;a
  83. href=&quot;http:&#x2F;&#x2F;bcn2014.mini.debconf.org&#x2F;venue.shtml&quot;&gt;beautiful venue&lt;&#x2F;a&gt;, in one
  84. of the most famous European cities!&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  85.  
  86. &lt;h3&gt;Schedule&lt;&#x2F;h3&gt;
  87.  
  88. &lt;p&gt;A &lt;a
  89. href=&quot;https:&#x2F;&#x2F;wiki.debian.org&#x2F;DebianWomen&#x2F;Projects&#x2F;MiniDebconf-Women&#x2F;2014&#x2F;Talks&quot;&gt;draft
  90. schedule&lt;&#x2F;a&gt; (still subject to some last minute changes) is already available.
  91. The list of talks promises two days packed with great talks!&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  92.  
  93. &lt;p&gt;If you have an exciting idea for a talk, but missed the deadline, please
  94. &lt;a href=&quot;mailto:[email protected]&quot;&gt;get in touch with us&lt;&#x2F;a&gt;,
  95. we might still have a slot for you.&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  96.  
  97. &lt;h3&gt;Crowd-funding&lt;&#x2F;h3&gt;
  98.  
  99. &lt;p&gt;We are still raising funds to cover the costs of running the conference and
  100. to offer travel sponsorship to people who can&#x27;t pay for it. Please, consider &lt;a
  101. href=&quot;http:&#x2F;&#x2F;freedomsponsors.org&#x2F;core&#x2F;issue&#x2F;427&#x2F;&quot;&gt;donating&lt;&#x2F;a&gt; any amount you
  102. can, everything helps!&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  103.  
  104. &lt;h3&gt;Sponsorship&lt;&#x2F;h3&gt;
  105.  
  106. &lt;p&gt;If you want to attend the conference, but are unable to cover the costs.
  107. Please contact us! We don&#x27;t have a big budget, but we will make our best
  108. to help. Naturally, priority will be given to participants who have an
  109. accepted talk.&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  110.  
  111. &lt;h3&gt;About this MiniDebConf&lt;&#x2F;h3&gt;
  112.  
  113. &lt;p&gt;We want to have a MiniDebConf with both talks and social events,
  114. to which everyone in Debian is invited but where the speakers in
  115. the talks are all people who identify themselves as female. We
  116. consider this important to&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  117.  
  118. &lt;ul&gt;
  119. &lt;li&gt;Encourage women who haven&#x27;t yet given their first DebConf talk&lt;&#x2F;li&gt;
  120. &lt;li&gt;Provide role models for women who are interested in contributing&lt;&#x2F;li&gt;
  121. &lt;li&gt;Debunk the myth that there are not enough women who can give
  122.   talks in DebConf&lt;&#x2F;li&gt;
  123. &lt;&#x2F;ul&gt;
  124.  
  125. &lt;p&gt;The idea behind the conference is not to talk about women in free
  126. software, or women in Debian, but rather to make discussion about
  127. Debian subjects more inclusive for women. If you agree with this
  128. goal, spread the word. Forward this announcement and help us make this
  129. event a great success!&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
  130.  
  131. &lt;h3&gt;About our sponsors&lt;&#x2F;h3&gt;
  132.  
  133. &lt;p&gt;This event is possible thanks to the help provided by our generous sponsors.
  134. In particular, we&#x27;d like to thank our platinum sponsor, &lt;a
  135. href=&quot;http:&#x2F;&#x2F;www.google.com&quot;&gt;Google&lt;&#x2F;a&gt;.&lt;&#x2F;p&gt;
