Release announcement mails
Debian Edu Buster will be released at the same time as Debian Buster (planned date: 2019-07-06).
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, linuxiskolen (at) skolelinux.no, debian-edu-german (at) lists.debian.org, bruker (at) skolelinux.no, debian-edu-french (at) lists.debian.org, styret (at) skolelinux.no, annonsering (at) nuug.no, pressemelding (at) nuug.no
Remember emails to debian-edu-announce@ must be signed by a Debian developer.
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: linuxiskolen (at) skolelinux.no, bruker (at) skolelinux.no, styret (at) skolelinux.no, 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
