Lucas Nussbaum is new Debian leader


Lucas Nussbaum, an assistant professor of computer science from Universite de Lorraine, is the new leader of the Debian GNU/Linux project.

He was voted in in the annual election that concluded over the weekend.

Two others were in the race: Gergely Nagy, who is studying for a degree in Hungarian grammar and literature; and Moray Allan, a freelance technology consultant.

Nussbaum, who has been a contributor to Debian since 2005, was making his first tilt at the leadership.

His platform was that Debian should aim at reinforcing its position in the center of the Free Software ecosystem.

The Debian project will mark its 20th birthday in August. Apart from being a very solid distribution in its own right, it is the base for many other distributions and supports more architectures than any other distribution.
