+# Mancoosi paper for DebConf8 now available
+
+As [[previously_announced|03/debconf8_blog_post_sticker]], I'll be attending
+[DebConf](http://debconf8.debconf.org) this year, as I did for the past 3 years.
+
+Beside the usual projects and ideas one carries with himself on his way to a
+DebConf, this time I will also be there to present part of my everyday work in
+*the [Mancoosi](http://www.mancoosi.org) project*. Very briefly (and a bit too
+simplistic) Mancoosi is working on pushing forward the research and technology
+needed to deliver *better package managers* to the users of open source software
+distributions.
+
+The *[project
+presentation](https://penta.debconf.org/penta/submission/dc8/event/251)* event
+proposed by me and Ralf Treinen has been accepted in the DebConf main track. The
+presentation will discuss what the former [EDOS
+project](http://www.edos-project.org) did, what Mancoosi is doing right now,
+trying to focus on their relationships with Debian. In case you are interested I
+suggest to attend the talk which will be delivered by yours truly (what else can
+I suggest? :) )
+
+In the meantime,
+**[[the_accompanying_paper|research/publications/debconf8-mancoosi.pdf]] is now
+available**, you can take a sneak peek if you are interested in knowing more
+about Mancoosi right ahead. The paper is available in
+[[.pdf|research/publications/debconf8-mancoosi.pdf]] format from both my
+homepage and from the [Pentabarf event
+page](https://penta.debconf.org/penta/submission/dc8/event/251) as an attachment
+<small>(the latter, as all Pentabarf events, needs login for reasons that I
+still fail to understand ...)</small>.
