More information about the status of the next release, for example. Looking at the archives of debian-announce, I see that since 2000, the number of messages per year has gone down constantly. Nowadays, the only messages we see there are announcing a new point release or a notice about big *problems* in the project ("Debian Security Support in Place", "Some Debian Project machines have been compromised"). Couldn't we just put something nice there? Like news that actually show how alive Debian is, reporting about new, shiny software packages in testing, with xxxtra-bling! Seriously, good press work isn't when you send out a "hrm, still not dead" notice every three of four months.
