Debaday needs entries

The Debian package of the Day blog is looking for contributors, as can be seen in this post. If there are debian packages you use, please consider writing an entry ! Here are my views on the subject:
  • It is rather quick - you don't have to write 200 lines. Just write about the way you use it !
  • With the statistics page, you'll be able to get an opinion of the impact of your post.
  • If you advocate the software well enough, it will gain users, which often implies a gain in quality in the Free Software world (more users means more bug reports, more patches, and possibly more contributors).
Of course, that means you'll need to write a decent entry. But for something you often use and you appreciate, that isn't so difficult. Check out their contribute page.
