Kartik Mistry’s meta thoughts on life, foss and beyond that..

Category: Foss.in

Debian Flyer

* Jaldhar started Debian-Intro project sometime back (I saw this as pamphlet in Indic Developer Meet in 2005!). And we wanted this for Foss.in. I created branch for Foss.in and we have it ready (only small changes, really!).

Interesting stats

* We love stats. Foss.in Delegate Stat is really interesting!

Foss.in: Posters

* Cool. Amazing. Put all good words here <..>. Thanks to Kishore and Harikrishnan.

Debian Tshirts

* Sometime ago, I thought, we should have T-shirt for Debian Project Day. I asked Pradeepto and he literally dragged me in pool of thoughts and he started things that had very happy end. Thanks to everybody who contribute so far. The design will be simple Debian logo plus ‘debian/rules’ below it (as we are going to lower the cost!).

If you feel, if you can contribute in this, you have limited time! I should have blogged this earlier 😦


* On Saturday night, while watching some horror movie, I got SMS of Anurag (and Pradeepto already invited me/us on IRC!) that we are meeting Kishore tomorrow. Wanna come? It was undecided until 10:30 am, and suddenly, I took bath. Camera was ready. And, I reached and found dudes after some try.

Chicken Salad

Kishor looking for nice pose of outsiders

* It was ‘Pizzeteria’ in front of ‘Hotel Ambassador’. Good Pizza. Roshan and me were veggie, others (Kishore, Anurag, Pradeepto) were only non-veggie! And, we talked lots of things. Mostly about upcoming events like Foss.in and Feb’s Freed.in.

* We then walked to Chopati for having ‘Green Mirchi Ice Cream’, Kishore discovered this during his early visit to Mumbai and we were not knowing this wonderful stuff even being Mumbaikars!

The Dudes


* Again, we had nice discussion and nice photography on ‘Pradeepto’ 😉 And then ‘Orange Ginger’ and then ‘Orange Juice’.

Kishore, we will love to meet you again 😛

the first cut

* Foss.in/2007 the first short list is out! Look at Debian-Ubuntu Project Day and be there. Apart from Debian, I am talking about OO.o Dictionary for Indic languages.

Debian Project Day

* Dear all, submit your talk(s) for Debian/Ubuntu Project Day before 8th Oct :P. Still in doubt about anything? Let me know.

Debian@Project Day, Foss.in/07

* Ah, We got place. See, this message for more details. And, yes, we need to work hard. This means more challenges, more 🙂

Foss Police: lolcat version

* Mighty Gora during Foss.in/2005. More are coming 😛

lolcat version

ldtp 0.9.0, ayttm 0.5.0+10

* LDTP (aka Linux Desktop Testing Project) has released 0.9.0. Download it. Debian packages will be there soon (temporary at mentors).

* Ayttm 0.5.0+10 is in Debian too! I have changed upstream minor version from -10 to +10 to avoid confusion with Debian revision number. Thanks to mones for upload and tips.

* Late but, we submitted joint proposal for Project Days at Foss.in for ‘Debian and Ubuntu‘. I hope that it will be accepted and we will have great time/fun. Thanks to Teknofreak, Soumyadip  and others for help in drafting proposal.
