RFA: www.debian.org/misc/merchandise

Dear all
As part of the recent web team sprint [1] (report will come in the
following days hopefully), we have reviewed several areas of the website
that were in need of maintenance.

[1] https://wiki.debian.org/Sprints/2019/DebianWebTeam

For the /english/misc/merchandise page [2], we need maintainer(s) to
keep up-to-date the database of merchandise, process new requests, and
care about the bugs related to the list of Debian merchandise, if any.

[2] https://www.debian.org/misc/merchandise

This is a call for help, or request for "adoption": would anybody
volunteer to this task?

In the /english/misc folder of our repo [3] you can find the
books-related files.


Maintaining the merchandise page can be a nice entry point for
somebody to get involved in the Debian web team. Technically speaking,
it's an easy job, but the "curation" task that a human provides is very
appreciated by our users. On the contrary, an outdated or unmaintained
list of providers looses its value very quickly.

If somebody is interested in adoption, they won't be alone (at least at
the beginning). I've included my address in the alias events@debian.org
to work together with them until they find a suitable workflow and they
feel comfortable doing the task themselves. We'll also document
everything for others to jump in too.

If nobody steps ahead at the end of the year, we'll move the current
(English) content to https://wiki.debian.org/Merchandise, removing the
page (English and translations) from www.debian.org.

If you are interested, reply to this message in the public mailing list
(debian-www@lists.debian.org) or privately to events@debian.org and I'll
point to detailed steps to start. You can also join #debian-www IRC
channel (in irc.debian.org).

Kind regards,
Laura Arjona Reina
