There is a general problem with debian lists that the owners
"forget" to take care of their lists and just let them wither
and die. This list seems to have been launched by the Debian
consultants list maintainer, but successors have done little
with it.

If consultants@ don't want it any more, let's appoint new
owners who will take care of it and try to make sure it is more
than a spamtrap. I'm sure there are many of us who are doing
interesting work thanks to debian who would like to read about
other interesting work.

I hope that you will post any interesting news or calls for help
here, but I agree that changes for the website should be sent
