  There is an area called News in Thomas Apel's new Debian page design...
http://www.koeln.netsurf.de/~thomas.apel/debian/index.html past press 
releases, news, etc. in my opinion should be kept there.  The current design 
also has a Latest News area.  I'll add a pointer to it.  This page is 
intended more for policy than for current material.

Clarified.  I don't know where it was posted originally (anyone know?).  I'm 
fairly sure Bruce is still with SPI... I'll leave it unless someone tells me 
otherwise. Does SPI have a web page?

Added links.

Actually, this page is intended to be targeted at the people in 
debian-publicity who will release official Debian related material to the 
press and public.  The CD related policies etc. should probably stay in the 
CD Distributor area.  I'm trying not to take too much information into this 
page to avoid bloat...


Thanks for the comments!
