I've put together a partial timeline of the Debian project using the SIMILE Project's DHTML timeline component.
This is definately work in progress: I would welcome additional events (by email or merge request please, not via blog comments) regarding:
- Dates of the earlier Debian releases
- Release freezes
- Interesting dates of important packages and tools (Linux kernel, XFree86/X.Org, glibc, aptitude, etc.)
The timeline is available to view here.
