Formatting of articles
Really great that there is a DWN alternative! With this e-mail I would
like to discuss the format of articles.
When I look at earlier versions of DWN I see that articles are only a
few lines and not longer than one paragraph. I think it would be good to
make that a rule for the future. Otherways the risk is that articles
will become longer and longer. I also think that it's better not to use
a title. The begin of the article can act as a title.
This is an old DWN article that is formatted like I suggested:
Message-ID Lookup for List Mails. Jeroen van Wolffelaar announced
that he has re-implemented the lookup by Message-ID for list mails
on lists.debian.org. This service is based on an idea by
Andrew Suffield who has terminated it recently. It also supports
multiple hits for a single ID.
The new article about Powua is an example of an article that is rather long.
