TCP MSS values – what’s changed? by Geoff Huston
Many #DebConf19 videos already published! Thanks Debian Video team! https://meetings-archive.debian.net/pub/debian-meetings/2019/DebConf19/
We published a statement on our stance on neutrality of free software (and why we won't stay neutral in this case): https://f-droid.org/en/2019/07/16/statement.html
gPodder.net is looking for a new maintainer!

Buster's release has been noticed by the CD distribution network https://www.acc.umu.se/technical/statistics/ftp/monitordata/ #releasingDebianBuster
