The Debian Project recently learned that it has lost a member of its community. Kristoffer H. Rose died on September 17th after a long battle with myelo fibrosis.

Kristoffer was a Debian contributor from the very early days of the project, and the upstream author of several packages that are still in the Debian archive nowadays, such as the LaTeX package Xy-pic and FlexML. On his return to the project after several years' absence, many of us had the pleasure of meeting Kristoffer during DebConf15 in Heidelberg.

Do you have to administrate a computer lab or a whole school network? Would you like to install servers, workstations and laptops which will then work together? Do you want the stability of Debian with network services already preconfigured? Do you wish to have a web-based tool to manage systems and several hundred or even more user accounts? Have you asked yourself if and how older computers could be used?

Then Debian Edu is for you. The teachers themselves or their technical support can roll out a complete multi-user multi-machine study environment within a few days. Debian Edu comes with hundreds of applications pre-installed, but you can always add more packages from Debian.

Debian regularly produces many variations of installation CDs, DVDs, and live or cloud images for its users. We are due to upgrade soon to a new central build machine for image production to make the most of the latest CPU and storage technologies.

Tuning the hardware and software configuration of a large build machine can be tricky, and buying the wrong equipment can be a costly mistake in terms of finance and administration time.

To help with this, the friendly people at Mythic Beasts loaned the project a large build machine configured with 12 cores, 256 GB RAM, multiple disks, SSDs and NVMe storage. Using this machine, we were able to evaluate various possible configurations for image building to ensure we purchased the right equipment with the most value for our needs.
