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
