Release announcement mails

/!\ Remember to replace XXX marked text.


Debian Edu Bullseye will be released at the same time as Debian Bullseye (planned date: XXX).

The Debian publicity team will send the Debian Edu release announcement mail one day after that date.

In addition, announcement mails from the Debian Edu team go to...

English -- To: debian-edu-announce (at) lists.debian.org, debian-edu (at) lists.debian.org, debian-edu-german (at) lists.debian.org, debian-edu-french (at) lists.debian.org, annonsering (at) nuug.no, pressemelding (at) nuug.no

/!\ Remember the debian-edu-announce@ list is a moderated one; emails need to be accepted by a list moderator (or need to be signed by a DD).

For translated announcements, the announcement mail should contain a link to the translation on debian.org/News (and thus could be short); they are sent to these recipients:

Bokmal/Norway -- To: annonsering (at) nuug.no, pressemelding (at) nuug.no

German -- To: debian-edu-german (at) lists.debian.org

French -- To: debian-edu-french (at) lists.debian.org


Release announcement draft

To be able to use the Debian publicity infrastructure more easily, the draft is kept in the Debian publicity team's announcements.git; see:

[ (./) ] https://salsa.debian.org/publicity-team/announcements/raw/master/en/drafts/debian-edu-bullseye-release.wml

The announcement has been translated to: (de,fr,gl,it,nl,pt,sv).

Clone:

git clone git@salsa.debian.org:publicity-team/announcements.git
