Release announcement mails


For English-only release announcements, the announcement mails go to...

English-only -- To: debian-edu-announce (at) lists.debian.org, debian-edu (at) lists.debian.org, linuxiskolen (at) skolelinux.no, admin-discuss (at) skolelinux.org, debian-edu-german (at) lists.debian.org, bruker (at) skolelinux.no, debian-edu-french (at) lists.debian.org, styret (at) skolelinux.no, press (at) debian.org, distro (at) distrowatch.com

/!\ Remember emails to debian-edu-announce@ must be signed by a Debian developer.

For translated announcements, the translated announcement mails 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

Available translations will show up on the debian.org website; the mails could thus be short, just linking to the website.


Release announcement draft

https://salsa.debian.org/publicity-team/announcements/raw/master/en/drafts/debian-edu-buster-release.wml

The announcement has been translated into: de, nl, fr (as of 2019-05-14).
