-* [FIXME](http://www.netbsd.org/releases/formal-8/NetBSD-8.0.html)
+* [Ludovic Court├Ęs](http://web.fdn.fr/~lcourtes/) wrote a blog post entitled [Multi-dimensional transactions and rollbacks](https://www.gnu.org/software/guix/blog/2018/multi-dimensional-transactions-and-rollbacks-oh-my/) which promotes the functional aspects of the [GNU Guix](https://www.gnu.org/software/guix/) package manager as well as it's "very strong guarantees in terms of reproducibility and provenance tracking."
 
-* [FIXME](https://www.gnu.org/software/guix/blog/2018/multi-dimensional-transactions-and-rollbacks-oh-my/)
+* NetBSD [announced their 8.0](http://www.netbsd.org/releases/formal-8/NetBSD-8.0.html) release which touts stability improvements, hundreds of bug fixes, and many new features including reproducible builds via `MKREPRO`.
+
+* We are continuing to see "fallout" from the default GCC version in Debian unstable changing from GCC 7 to GCC 8. As outlined in our previous post, as we have not updated our build path patches for this newer version it is resulting in a large number of packages becoming unreproducible in our testing framework. We have temporarily disabled rescheduling of already-tested packages.
 
 * Holger added 26GB to the partition used for Debian reproducible tests on jenkins.debian.net so that there is enough free space again to cope with the increased size needs due to unreproduciblities introduced due to gcc-8. This fixed a number of jenkins jobs who were constantly failing the last days...
 
-* FIXME: CircleCI notes the importance of "deterministic builds" in a training video it created: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOSHKNUIkjY - Many projects use CircleCI, so their stress on making builds deterministic should help spread the word elsewhere.
+* In the upcoming week a number of the Reproducible Builds team are at [DebConf18](https://debconf18.debconf.org/), the annual Debian Developers conference. The [schedule](https://debconf18.debconf.org/schedule/) includes talks entitled:
+
+  * "[Reproducible Buster and beyond](https://debconf18.debconf.org/talks/80-reproducible-buster-and-beyond/)" by the Reproducible Builds team.
+  * "[My crush on GNU Guix](https://debconf18.debconf.org/talks/99-my-crush-on-gnu-guix/)" by Vagrant Cascadian.
+  * "[Software transparency: package security beyond signatures and reproducible builds](https://debconf18.debconf.org/talks/104-software-transparency-package-security-beyond-signatures-and-reproducible-builds/)" by Benjamin Hof.
+
+* The [CircleCI](https://circleci.com/) continuous integration platform notes the importance of "deterministic builds" in a [training video it has produced](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOSHKNUIkjY). As many projects use CircleCI, their emphasis on making builds deterministic should help spread that related concept elsewhere.
+
+* Three Debian package reviews were added, one was updated and one was removed in this week, adding to [our knowledge about identified issues](https://tests.reproducible-builds.org/debian/index_issues.html).
