An opportunity to meet the members of the Debian Technical Committee who are in attendance at Debconf, hear the status of open issues, understand the nature of the TC’s work, and discuss pending and future issues with the committee.


Report from the Debian EFI team about the support of Secure Boot on Debian

This talk is a report on the current status of the support of Secure Boot on Debian by the EFI team and what is missing. The team are going to explain the main architecture and workflow, the required changes in dak, how the signing service works and how this impacts packaging due to the new template binary packages required for the signing service.


The Debian System Administration team will provide a status update on its activities since DebConf17 and will discuss objectives for the following year.

GDPR in Debian

On May 25th, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation went into effect. This changes how every organisation needs to treat personal data. What does this mean for Debian? We have a data protection team which acts as an external contact point and an internal advice service, but Debian has not otherwise prepared for GDPR.

We would like to talk about what the team does, does not and how Debian should approach the GDPR.
