Re: SPI annual report: update from member projects

I sent the following to leader <at>  two weeks ago but I probably should
have copied debian-publicity.

Can someone send me a one paragraph summary of Debian's achievements
betwee July 1 2014 to June 30 2015.  Maybe something about the release
of jessie and the DPL elections?

Initial call for Publicity team meeting: dates/times for July 2015

Dear all

We agreed to have a Publicity team meeting in the beginning of July.
Sorry that I'm a bit late to coordinate this, but better late than
never, I suppose.

I have created the meeting page:

and a dudle for next week:

Please enter your preferences in order to agree a date/time. Times are
in UTC, and dates/times can be added/deleted by anybody.

About the agenda (in the meeting page), add the items you consider, I'll
review the minutes of last meetings to get sure nothing is forgotten, I
hope to get a more-or-less completed agenda before the weekend.

[maxy <at> Proposal 233 - Debian Publicity: what we can do better? (Cédric Boutillier)]

Dear Team,

I received the following email from DebConf organizers about one of the
two proposals by the team (the BoF).
Do we need a large room and video coverage for this BoF?
My opinion is that since the talk (the other event) will be recorded, it
may be enough to gather the interested people for the BoF, and send a
report to the list afterwards.

What do you think?

In DebConf15, the largest BoF room will have space for a maximum of 45 people
(and will have video coverage) and there will be a number of other smaller
rooms with space for 15 to 20 people, without video coverage.

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

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):
