Debian community in India has a long and diverse history. Earliest events date back to 2006 when various free software developers from India joined Debian under various roles. Due to this, Debian is partially/fully available in 11 local Indian languages. A number of events including MiniDebConf, release parties, Debian Utsav/Utsavam has helped grow the community. We recently hosted the online MiniDebConf India which had 48+ talks/events from 6 local languages under two tracks. We’re also getting ready to host the Debian community in DebConf 2023 scheduled to held in India. These events have given us the platform to publicize the use, adoption and contribution of Debian in India.

In this BoF we’ll have members of Debian India community coming together to discuss Debian community and it’s activities in India.
