Empaquetamiento en Debian: de novato a novato

En agosto pasado (2020) se llevó a cabo la DebConf20, una conferencia específica de Debian y dentro de la misma hubo un track en español a modo de Mini DebConf.

I have never liked the excess of colors that is present on the bar, though:

The top panel on my Xfce session showing multiple sensors and how it shows too many distracting colors.

The top panel on my Xfce session showing multiple sensors and how it shows too many distracting colors. Taken from My laptop was broken into.

This takes away from noticing effortlessly whenever something out of the ordinary is occurring. So I put everything (or as much as possible) in gray shades. I managed to change its appearance quite easily:
