* FREEZE IN SUMMER 2012 *
There are only few weeks left till the Debian project will freeze its testing suite in preparation for the upcoming release of Debian 7.0 (wheezy). This freeze will most likely happen in June 2012. If the Debian packages of your favorite neuroscience research software are not yet up-to-date – or worse, there are no packages in Debian yet – it is time to act NOW!
Software (updates) that do not get uploaded within the next two to three weeks are in danger of not making it into the release candidate in time before the freeze. If you miss this opportunity, there won’t be a chance to get into the flagship of free and open source operation systems for a couple of years...
Get in touch with your local Debian developer to discuss what can still be done.
