Debian Fast Track is a repository that allows making “backports” of packages available to users of the stable distribution, if those packages cannot be maintained in testing and backported in the usual way.
GitLab is a web-based Git repository management tool which also provides other features such as issue-following capabilities, wikis, CI/CD capabilities, project management tools etc.
In this talk we will cover the Gitlab Installation process using the Debian FastTrack repository. We will be using a Debian Stable server add demo up the addition of the fast track repository to install Gitlab on it. This talk hopes to accomplish the following. - Primer to Debian FastTrack - Installation process of Gitlab using FastTrack repository on a Debian Server. - Be a documented video source for the Gitlab Installation process on Debian.
We have the fine tradition of having DebConf N share their experiences with DebConf N+1. The DebConf committee will also be present and we invite a core member of every team to come around and help with the knowledge transfer.
The session will begin with a DebConf23 presentation.
In order to do the software packaging for Debian, we need to a clean Debian environment, which usually is a Debian Unstable. This Debian unstable environment for doing the packaging can be setup using different ways, most popular of them being chroot, container tools like lxc, Docker, and VMs as well as bare metals.
This talk will cover the process of setting up the Development environment for Debian Packaging. using different tools available on Debian using some of the tools mentioned above including chroot, LXC and Docker.
This process is already well documented on Debian Wiki, this talk would be a documented video source for the Debian Packaging tutorial.
Debian Derivatives BoF Session.
A Debian derivative is a distribution that is based on the work done in Debian but has its own identity, goals and audience and is created by an entity that is independent from Debian. Derivatives modify Debian to achieve the goals they set for themselves.
DebConf usually also has people contributing to multiple Debian Derivatives. This BoF session would be an opportunity for these distro communities to share/collaborate/discuss the issues and opportunities on Debian derivatives development. Also it will give an opportunity to Debian derivatives team to discuss on how Debian and derivatives better collaborate with each other more inclusively.
