This is a weblog I'm keeping about my work on Debian and any other useful Debian related info I come across. It is not meant to compete with other news sources like Debian Weekly News or Debian Planet. Mostly it is just a way for me to classify and remember all the random bits of information that I have floating around me. I thought maybe by using a blog it could be of some use to others too. Btw. "I" refers to Jaldhar H. Vyas, Debian developer for over 5 years. If you want to know more about me, my home page is here.
The name? Debain is a very common misspelling of Debian and la salle de bains means bathroom in French.
If you have a comment to make on something you read here, feel free to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I just posted a message to debian-devel asking for volunteers to take over most of the maintenance work for dovecot. I had already given up webmin and related packages and most of my perl packages to projects on Alioth. This means I am now the sole maintainer of only two minor perl modules in the official Debian distribution.
This hardly means I'm retiring though. I am still involved and in fact plan to increase my work in the YaST for Debian and Debian-IN projects. Theres' some documentation I'm interested in doing, and some work for DebConf 5. And I still intend to remain involved in my former packages. (For webmin, I'm still the de-facto maintainer.)
