Re: Volunteering for your Publicity Team

Hi Melanie,

Thanks for volunteering! I'm CCing you on this mail since I'm not sure
if you are subscribed. Please join our mailing list and IRC channel:

https://lists.debian.org/debian-publicity/
irc://irc.debian.org/debian-publicity/

For some information about the team and how to contribute to Debian
Project News, please take a look at these two wiki pages:

http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Publicity
http://wiki.debian.org/ProjectNews/HowToContribute

For a quick bitesized task, take a look at the to-do list for the next
newsletter, choose one item and send in a short writeup about it:

http://alioth.debian.org/scm/viewvc.php/*checkout*/dpn/en/current/index.wml?root=publicity&content-type=text%2Fplain

Contributions to the publicity team (and Debian in general) are open
to all so there is no need to give out your resume.

Generally we use text-based communication such as email and IRC rather
than voice. I don't think the press/publicity team uses it, but there
is a Mumble server open for Debian voice chat, more info here:

http://debian-party-line.branchable.com/

In case you want to help out with French translation within Debian,
please take a look at these pages:

http://www.debian.org/international/
http://www.debian.org/international/French
http://www.debian.org/international/french/
http://www.debian.org/international/l10n/po/fr
http://www.debian.org/international/l10n/po-debconf/fr
http://www.debian.org/devel/website/stats/fr
http://ddtp.debian.net/ddtss/index.cgi/fr

Just so you know, debian-news.net is not run by the Debian
press/publicity teams.

As I already replied to Melanie, a good thing to do is take a look at
the to-do list for the next Debian Project News and do a writeup on
one item. The current draft is available here:

http://alioth.debian.org/scm/viewvc.php/*checkout*/dpn/en/current/index.wml?root=publicity&content-type=text%2Fplain

1H, hosting server management software vendor to officially support Debian.

Hi,

Recently, quite well know (hosting) server management and monitoring software vendor 1H [1] announced that it's products suite, consisting of optimization, intrusion prevention and monitoring applications are becoming officially supported and compatible with Debian [2].

Guess, That's good news, knowing that enterprise grade solution provider officially supports Debian, organizations will be much more comfortable with deploying Debian in enterprise environments.

Don't know if this news are worth of DPN, but still, it's pleasant fact.

I don't think it would be appropriate to advertise non-free software in DPN.

I don't think it would be appropriate to advertise non-free software in DPN.

Not sure that it can be considered as an advertisement of proprietary software. It's more about proprietary software vendor taking Debian into account, and that's not something we hear every day...  Anyways, that's only my opinion.

Nice item. In the interest of getting maximum efficiency for our 
message, I have two comments on it.
First, the current presentation somewhat gives the impression that 
people would participate in the publicity team by a lack of 
skills/opportunities to participate in other areas of the project. I 
would drop any reference to packaging or any other task in this request. 
Instead, let's focus on what tasks need manpower and what skills these 
need. Skills like having good knowledge of what's happening in the 
project, communicating well, and writing well. For what it's worth, I'm 
not sure people need to write well in English specifically. Don't we 
also need people to simply translate the DPN and other publications?

Similarly, I would put less emphasis on "joining the team" and more on 
helping the team. We already have enough people listed as part of the 
team doing little, what we need is not a longer list of members, but 
more job done. An example of the orientation I would privilege: instead 
of "joining the Publicity Team", "participating in the Publicity Team".

Also on that item, while higher frequency would definitely help, it's 
not the only thing the DPN could use. I would also encourage people to 
help it increase its quality (in general).

"marking security updates" doesn't sound right. I would say

"that Ubuntu plan" is quite casual. I would recommend "He notes a Ubuntu 
plan [...]" instead.

I don't think OSI is plural.

I for one don't consider this very newsworthy. We already a yearly 
appreciation day for thanking Debian.

I don't know where the quote is from, but if there is no "it" in the 
quote, we should put a "[sic]". Is it normal that there is no link to a 
mailing list thread or something on that item?

Two-letter acronyms should be well-known... I imagine "OR" stands for

The 60 RC bugs figure is incorrect. The number 60 refers to bug 
*reports* with a severity suggesting they were RC. It would be nice to 
have (linked) the statistics too.

It's not clear to me why this says "indeed".

Eeeeek!!! Thankfully, the number of RC bugs in wheezy is more like 937 
for now (see

http://udd.debian.org/bugs.cgi?release=wheezy&merged=ign&fnewerval=7&rc=1&sortby=id&sorto=asc 
). And the number remaining to be solved is more like 801. Yes, just that...
