Happy New Year
--------------

Welcome to the first edition of the GWN for 2007! This marks the 6th year of
the Gentoo Weekly Newsletter, which was started by Kurt Lieber[1] on 23 Dec
2002 with contributions from the community. Since that time, there have been
more than 200 issues of the Gentoo Weekly Newsletter. The GWN staff looks
forward to another year of providing the community with information about
Gentoo.

First 2007 Gentoo Bugday
------------------------

Saturday the 6th of January is the date for the first Bugday event in 2007
to take place. As usual, join #gentoo-bugs on irc.freenode.net and hang out
there and help out making Gentoo and even better distribution.

There are a lot of new members in the Bugday team that will be at your
service to help you with different ways to resolve bugs. If you have any
questions, feel free to contact Alexander Færøy[2] by either email or on
IRC. Welp and Kloeri will be available to help on Bugday.

   2. eroyf@g.o

The Bugday team wishes everyone a happy new year and hopes you'll
participate in the event.

Russia: Gentoo meeting, Moscow
------------------------------

On Saturday, 23 December 2006, there was a meeting of Russian members of the
Gentoo community. Currently, the Russian Gentoo community is split into two
independent groups: the Russian translators team and the team that supports
the Russian Gentoo forums and other gentoo community resources. Both of
these teams put effort into translation of the GWN and other documentation.
It's clear that consolidation of efforts is beneficial for both of the teams
and for the users. This decision was made between Peter Volkov from the
Russian translation team and Anton Chaplygin and Anton Senkovsky from the
forums team.

Another part of meeting was devoted to playing with exciting beryl desktop
effects, solving logical problems, beer and fun. Photos are available on
gentoo.ru[3].

4. Gentoo package moves
=======================

This section lists packages that have either been moved or added to the tree
and packages that have had their "last rites" announcement given to be
removed in the future. The package removals come from many locations,
including the Treecleaners[4] and various developers. Most packages which
are listed under the Last Rites section are in need of some love and care
and can remain in the tree if proper maintainership is established.
