== What's this? ==
The front page Debian-related news are a collection of headlines syndicating Debian-related sites. You have also to understand that this is a beta project to see if it's worthwhile to have related news around. Obviously, this news are displayed at FrontPage.
This wiki is a support and documentation resource for the [http://www.debian.org Debian] project, as well as a means of communication between developers. Like all wikis, this wiki is constantly changing and we welcome your edits. If you are looking for something in particular try FindPage.
Line 4: Line 3:
== How? ==
The engine used to process the feeds is [http://www.planetplanet.org Planet], being run each 6 hours, at 06, 12, 18 and 24 hrs, UTC. After getting the content, WWW::Mechanize inserts it on this wiki.

Line 7: Line 5:
== Who? ==
Any Debian related news website can be syndicated. They just have to provide Debian content quite often, and that's it. I really appreciate, in behalf of the Debian project, having so many nice unofficial Debian news sites: That's how our community gets stronger and stronger.

== NO EDITING! ==
Please, don't edit anything of the markup containing the front page news or you will make the whole front page break and you, your sons and grandsons will be burn in hell, after being sodomized by a tribe of Mexican indians :-) (No, seriously, '''please don't edit anything of it''', if you are in doubt of something, please let me know).

== There are Ubuntu news! Horror! ==
Well, yes. Ubuntu is a Debian-related project, therefore, most of the sites around publish their news also. Anyway, since I see most of the news around Ubuntu or any other Debian flavour very interesting, I don't feel any pain to allow Ubuntu news on the news. If you have an anger feeling about it, please let me know, we all can discuss it together.

SpotLight: WhyDebian

"Why Debian?", you may ask. Debian is another GNU/Linux distribution, and it is another Unix-like operating system. What makes it better than the rest? Why should I use Linux at all? WhyDebian explains all.
