Full ack on this. IMO we should really create a central news service that
- debian-announce / debian-news mails
- some cherry picked planet.d.o posts (maybe even from other blogs from
time to time, there are some interesting stuff on planet.ubuntu.com for
- maybe times.debian.net if it's not redundant with
I would be interested to help run/setup such a service although I don't
