On Friday, May 10, 2013 a proposal for decreasing Debian's release cycle was published on LWN.net and then cross-posted to Hacker News, where I first saw the proposal. The original document is available on the Debian Wiki within the scope of the Essay Debating System. Several automation systems are referenced in the article including piuparts, lintian, adequate and autopkgtest. Additionally, there is Jenkins. I created an account on the Debian Wiki (see Profile).
