Google Tech TalksOctober 13, 2006Anthony TownsABSTRACTCurrent Debian Project Leader, former Release Manager and all round good guy, Anthony "aj" Towns will give an in depth look at the ideas and code that hold Debian's "testing" suite together, from its initial genesis, through basic prototypes, to the "final" implementation and the couple of rewrites it's had since.
