The /debutsav-cochin/ discussion is progressing fairly and as we
agreed upon dividing in to two parallel tracks of talks/sessions. I
was wondering what we are going to add to the Debian track. How we are
promoting to the Debian people outside Kerala? I suppose the forever
flagship talk - Introduction to Debian and Debian packaging session
will be in the FOSS track.
PS: Not just D people, everybody is invited to share your bits.

 Release Notes for Hamara Sugam -
*Hamara Sugam*is a feature-rich Operating System targeting the masses.
We have tried to make user experience foolproof by providing the
following features in this release.
1. Easy to use Calamares Installer
Considering the mind boggling setup with Debian Installer for anyone new
to installing Operating Systems, we tried porting toUbiquity
Installerwhich was later overtaken byCalamares. Calamares is the
universal installer framework which is very customizable while being
super easy and pragmatic. We have this beautiful installer integrated
with Hamara Sugam keeping our promise of making the distro easy-to-use

2. Power Up: Linux kernel
We have upgraded the kernel to keep in sync with Debian and we shall
keep pushing the latest kernels via point updates.
We’re using Materiatheme for GTK and Papertheme for icons in Sugam
taking into account the assuasive design and experience.
4. Generic application names
To avoid any confusion for users which might be caused by using MATE DE
due to their naming conventions, we have made most application names
