Seeing your fixed in the wild

Debian logo Yesterday, at the exercise class for the course on Security and Fault-tolerance in Distributed Systems, Christian Cachin booted his laptop to show us some graphs explaining how the sophistication of onlin attacks have gone up, while the level of knowledge necessary to execute these attacks have dropped.

His laptop was running Debian and I noticed that the image of the Debian Swirl in his version of GDM has a little white border around it. And this is exciting for me because I made that border! :-) Or at least I filled wishlist bug #201303 against the gdm package, which the maintainer then accepted. It’s very cool to see something like this — even though it’s a purely cosmetic thing.
