See /Help for more information on how to write entries. If you have any questions, please ask the publicity team or the the Debian English localisation mailing-list.

If you are able to post to debian-devel-announce (all Debian members can) and there are 5 or more items below, you might want to send out the news. To send out a new issue, you can use this helper script to generate the email version of this page. After generating the mail, proof-read it, correct any spelling, formatting or grammatical errors and send out the mail. Once the mail is sent and archived, please delete the items that were sent, add a link to the archived mail in the Previous news section and mention the mail in ProjectNews.

New wiki tag CategoryDebianSpeaker for Debian Speakers

The Debian web team is in the process of removing the list of Debian Speakers from the website. As an alternative, we have created a wiki category CategoryDebianSpeaker that you can use in your personal wiki page on the Debian wiki to be listed as speaker.

When adding the category to your personal page, please include a section with some information useful to people seeking speakers such as links to your previous talks, the languages you give talks in, the regions/locations you give talks in and the topics you are able to give talks about.

More details about the reasoning and how the new system will work are available.
