The Debian developers-reference handbook, or src:developers-reference or will turn 25 years in 2022 and while it has seen quite some modernisation over the years, there are still many areas of Debian where the reference has become somewhat outdated…

Holger will present a tiny bit of history of this important package, quickly present the modern parts (git, markdown, part of the Debian group on salsa) and the current translation workflow (which needs an overhaul…) and then finish the talk with a simple summary of all open wishlist bugs, which are mostly about pieces of documenation which needs to be written.

If you are looking for ways to improve Debian by writing and improving documentation and or translating it, this talk is for you!
