Meeting for discussing the talk for DebConf15, and next team-meeting

Dear all

As we agreed in our last meeting ( ), Cédric,
Ana and me (at least) will try to meet next week to agree in a proposal
for talk/BoF for DebConf15 about the publicity team.

Initial draft (based on the DebConf talk submission fields) is here:

A dudle to make easy to decide the day and time to meet is here:

Everybody is welcome to attend and give ideas.

I have created meeting wiki pages for this meeting and next meetings (we
agreed to meet in July, and probably in DebConf):

press at DebConf15

Hi publicity-/ DebConf press team,

Since I am in touch with some of the German IT journalists anyway, I 
talked with some press contacts about DebConf15 and if they would like 
to attend. I got the following feedback:

* Hans-Joachim Baader (co-founder and editor of prolinux): he wants to 
come, just has to check the dates, if it will be possible

* Jan Kleinert (chief editor or Linux Magazin): Unfortunatly nobody from 
Linux Mag will come (because they are understaffed due to summer 
holidays during DebConf)

* Oliver Diedrich (chief editor of Heise open/ c't): Heise is also quite 
thinly-staffed during the summer holidays, but potentially Micro Dölle 
from c't will come for one day to Heidelberg and maybe also someone from 
iX - they're scheduling the summer tasks of the editorial staff at the 
moment. Oliver Diedrich will let me know, as soon as they know if 
somebody can attend.

In addition to our phone calls, I send all of them an email with the 
press contact details for DebConf15 as written here:

* Jörg Thoma, golem: I just wrote an email

Let me know, if there are other IT media in Germany (like for example 
Computerwoche or tecchannel....) which you think would be a good idea to 
invite to DebConf - maybe I'm already in touch with them and can make a 
quick call :-)

Picon post about the Ruby sprint last month

Cédric suggested I write a post about the Ruby sprint, and here it is:

Should apply cleanly against the current master branch of the bits.d.o
git repository. I did check the markdown rendering, but did not try
building the site (stuff not in the archive etc). Please feel free to
edit as you see fit.

Design help needed: Debian Roll-up Banners


during yesterdays Debian publicity team IRC meeting one of the items
discussed was about promoting Debian at open source events. One of the
ideas that came up were Roll-up banners.

I literly work next door to a company producing those and the DPL agreed
that we will produce some of them.

What we need now is a design for them.

Technical details:

printed size:  85cm x 210cm
viewable size: 85cm x 200cm
the last 10cm will not be viewable, so put no text there, but in case
you put color there or a gradient, pull it until 210cm.

needs to be in CMYK, 300DPI.

My idea is that we put the 'Debian Open Use Logo' with 'Debian' at the
top and have some general information about Debian below that. Font size
should be not too small, as those roll-up banners are intended to be
used at open source event booths.

So design proposals welcome!

Publicity team meeting: 2015/05/05, 18h UTC, at IRC #debian-publicity channel

Hi everybody

After all the kind words and efforts from everybody (thanks!) I'm
calling for a meeting next Tuesday 05 May 2015, at 18h UTC in
#debian-publicity on

Right now, 5 people seem available to meet.

Following Paul's suggestion and Games team's expertise, I have created
the wiki infrastructure for the meetings:  (general page)

Page for next meeting:

My proposal is to have an 1-hour meeting, with a quick round among all
the topics. Hopefully there will be next meetings to get in-depth :)

I'd prefer somebody else chairs the meeting (it would be my first time
dealing with meetbot and the chronometer). Silence means I'll chair -
wish me luck, then :)

Typo in Jessie release news

I found what seems a typo in

"completely rewritten and more reponsive"

instead of, I think:

"completely rewritten and more responsive".

Kind regards,


Debian Release 8 - Press Text frozen - Please translate --OK

Please find attached the Greek version of Jessie's release notes. Hope
that's sufficient. (And not too late)
