I think this would be nice, but not in bsdmainutils.  This should be
in a package by itself.

[Technical musings: I would imagine that it would depend upon
bsdmainutils and use calendar.  But would have its own crontab file
which would use the -f option to reach your specific calendar file.
This would allow this to be rather independent of other packages.]

I looked at the dates for several Debian events such as Project Leader
and failed to see a complete list.  Here is a reference.  Could you
bring the calendar list up to date?

Under the "Debian releases" area I believe the text of the Infomagic
message is too harsh.  Debian should not be vindictive.  I think that
should eliminated.  It was not a real Debian release.  At the very
least it should be softened to be factual only.  Perhaps the prose
from this reference could be a guide.
