Re: Introductory blurp

I agree it would be nice to have some kind of guidelne for what goes in the opener paragraph. 

With respect to the Google Summer of Code, in particular, Alexander Schmel sent a note to the list saying that they were still ironing out a few details with the GSoC projects and as such didn't want a full blown detailed announcement to go out with the DPN this time around.

 Welcome to this year's 2nd issue of DPN, the newsletter for the
 Debian community. Erich Schubert announced that Debian has
 successfully received 13 slots in this years Google Summer of
 Code. [...]

What goes in there and what gets a story? It seems like GSoC would
definitely be worth more than one sentence, wherease dabase.com/tips
or the events where Debian will be present could easily be done with
a single sentence.
