Debian Publicity Team

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.
  • Reference: Updating delegation - Press/Publicity/Bits, by the DPL, September 2015
