The only active member of the press team is Nils and he's been in transit
from Boston to France...  The web team (me) waits for posts to either
debian-news or debian-announce (not debian-devel-announce) before putting
it up on the web in the "News" section.  This is mostly to ease the
work load of combing the news group for what might be news.. that's what
the weekly summarie's by Joey Hess are fore.

Yes.  I could use the original eps files (and xfig files if Raul can make
them) instead of the less than perfect ones I have been using.  If xfig
files aren't realistic, then 4 eps files, one of each with words and one of
each w/o words (make that another one, words only).  Those are the only
major manipulations we do..  sometimes move the words to the side or remove
them entirely..

Credit is due where credit is due.  I think we can add something to the
donations page... we can even let onShore suggest the wording..
