== Task description ==

  * The publicity team moderate news and announcements in all the Debian official resources:
  * mailing lists of general interest, such as debian-announce and debian-news (but not the the localized -news-$lang mailing lists)
  * the official blog of the Debian project, "Bits from Debian"
  * any official social media of the project
  * and any other channels where Debian gets an official online presence.

 * The team is also responsible for the maintenance of the News part of the English version of the Debian website (i.e. the content currently located under webwml/english/News/).

 * The team is in charge of deciding the most suitable publication venue or venues for announcements and when they are published.

 * Team members must word articles in a way that reflects the Debian project's stance on issues rather than their own personal opinion.

 * Finally, the Publicity Team is the official Debian contact point for press inquiries and media people outside Debian. When acting in such capacity, members of the team act as a spokesperson of the Debian Project.
