No. It would probably be a source which was aggregated into DebianTimes but I
see it as having a different focus. To me, Debian Times is for the active
Debian community, Debian Project News is for people on the edge of or outside
the community. Different audiences and different (but overlapping) content.
For content I meant very much the same content as DPN today -- just using a
blog to make contribution and publication easier and more lightweight (but
without the same editorial control, of course). If we have an editor for
DPN, who can contribute the time then that is best. But if we don't I was
looking for a way to keep the same style of content going.
