How to use publicity "services"

Developer information explains how to use press/publicity facilities.

Get involved


  • {*} Look for news from the press (see Tracking press coverage below) and update press coverage pages.

  • {*} Find a topic for a DPN entry.

  • {*} Redact a DPN entry.

  • {*} Translate draft communications (press releases, DPN editions).

  • {*} Review draft communications. Verify exactitude, relevance and proper form (language, etc).

  • {*} Submit events to the Debian timeline.

More involved:

  • {*}{*} Contact people, interview and propose drafts of success stories to be published.

  • {*}{*} Follow other groups, and ensure those with newsworthy activity are properly covered. Make sure they communicate and do so optimally (going through the publicity group when appropriate).
