The purpose of this wiki page is mainly to track press coverage about Debian in 2007. New stuff is added at the top, older stuff at the bottom.

If possible do not only list press coverage, but try to relate it to respective mails / news / whatever from our side, so we can see, what press published after we made some kind of announcement.
