[times] birthday announcement


tomorrow is the 13th birthday, so we might want to do an announcement:

Subject: Debian turns 13

On August 16th, 1993 Ian Murdock announced a new type of distribution
and listed the goals he wanted to achieve. 13 years later the Debian
community will celebrate this birthday around the world,

A lot has happened since Ian's first mail: The project is lead by its
ninth leader and more than a thousand developers are registered to
work voluntarily on one of the largest distributions of Free Software.

Debian is currently busy with the preparations of the next stable
release called "Etch", which is planned for December 4th. Recently the
first packages have been put in bugfix-only mode for this release
already, and a beta of the installer has been published.
