Re: improving https://wiki.debian.org/LTS/Development

I think it would be an improvement, yes.

I agree that page is too long, and that a shorter checklist would be
very nice to have. And then it just occurred to me that the table of content
on that page *is* that:

3. Prepare security updates for LTS

  1.  Claim the issue in the security tracker (in dla-needed.txt)
  2.  Build the update
  3.  Test the update
  4.  Upload the update
  5.  Claim an DLA ID in DLA/list
  6.  Announce the update
  7.  Prepare an update for the website

Should we maybe put just this on a page called https://wiki.debian.org/LTS/Development/TLDR
which then people can look at when they occasionally do a DLA?

(and link to that TLDR page promininently from our other pages?)

do you think this would be an improvement? Do you have other ideas?

I'm not sure this will help that much... a.) people miss these notes and
then b.) how long ago is 'recent'?
