The Debian project is quite diverse and big, and it is hard for us
Debian contributors to keep track of what happens. Not many contributors
are even aware that this firstname.lastname@example.org address exists I believe.
So I would like to suggest to send these reports to email@example.com
too, so that our developer and non-developer community will be more
aware of what has been done for/with Debian via GSoC and Outreachy.
A very good idea. I totally agree.
Projects that are more of technical nature such as this year's work by
Alexandre Viau could even send their final report to firstname.lastname@example.org
in my opinion.
This will help students to receive comments and hopefully stay or become
more integrated in Debian AND make more Debian contributors aware of the
great work you have all done!
