OTOH Debian has been struggling maintaining the existing information sources: www.d.o redesign is being worked on for quite a long time, times.d.n has technical issues for ages, news.d.n is essentially a one woman show afaik (correct me if I'm wrong), DWN has struggled a long time until it was resurrected (thanks!)

AFAICT times.d.n is essentially dead. Additionally: the "select random developers" interview requests didn't work out either, I didn't get responses in the end. I *did* get quite a few positive emails from readers though and I'm thinking that I'd like to revive the interviews, perhaps as a replacement of the new developer introductions (I don't remember who has done these a few times.) Currently I'm not sure where to post them, though, and I don't want to funnel them to planet just via my own blog. > I think it > would be better to discuss the idea first, from a pure communication > point of view, and only then delve into the technical details.
