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 announcement mail should contain a link to the translation on debian.org/News; 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

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


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-buster-release.wml

The announcement has been translated into: de, nl, fr, sv (as of 2019-06-16).

Clone:

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