There have been some new subdomains created as easier forms of
communication wrt debian (some unofficial and some not) like
times.debian.net and release.debian.org. Would it be useful or desired
to create a central location, as opposed to doing 
'site:debian.org position statement' in google, to view these official
positions that Debian has issued, possibly for media consumption and
for others looking to know Debians position on popularly discussed
issues? Not including say the social contract
page or people.debian.org entries that some folks like yourself have.
