Bits from the Release Team

A draft of the freeze policy, describing the changes that can be considered for inclusion in Jessie after the freeze, is already available. Niels also summarised the results of the porter roll-call of architectures in unstable and testing, and indicated that the architecture qualification page has been updated to include the names of the current porters. To conclude, he itemised the list of release goals that have been proposed and that will be reviewed by the Release Team for possible adoption, and indicated that Britney, the testing migration script, and build services are now able to understand and process pkg:any multiarch dependency relationships.

Create modular server-side Java apps direct from mvn modules with diet4j instead of an app server

In the latest release, the diet4j module framework for Java has learned to run modular Java apps using the Apache jsvc daemon (best known from running Tomcat on many Linux distros). If org.example.mydaemon is your top Maven project, all you do is specify it as the root module for your jsvc invocation, and diet4j figures out the dependencies when jsvc starts. An example systemd.service file is available.
