Status update 2020-07-11: I will be without Internet access for the foreseeable future, starting from 2020-07-12. Please understand that I will only reply to your messages whenever I manage to get back. That may be in a few weeks from now or longer. It all depends on whether I secure enough income amidst the ongoing crisis. Apologies in advance for whatever inconvenience.

New book: Prot's Dots For Debian

I just published a book about free/libre software. This is a full guide to reproducing my custom desktop session (my dotfiles) on Debian 10 ‘buster’.

As noted in the book, the period prior to the official release of Debian 10 is considered a “beta” phase and is only meant to be used by testers or early adopters. PDFD will exit beta once ‘buster’ is out (expected in the summer of 2019)—at which point I will make the necessary adjustments to the book’s contents.

Prot’s Dots For Debian (PDFD) is available free of charge and freed from traditional copyright restrictions. It is distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike Licence (CC BY-SA) 4.0. Its code is licensed in the same spirit using the GNU General Public License version 3 or later.

You can read the book online or visit its print-optimised page to get a physical copy.

Because this is code-related, I assume that readers will have the minimum technical skills to also make use of the following git repositories (contributions are most welcome):
