Re: Guidance needed for Italian Debian/Ubuntu mini-conference press-announce

Thank you both Stefano and Justin for your reviews and suggestions, this
is what I consider the final text for press announce.

Subj: Italian Debian Community Conference 2010 - 17th-19th September, Perugia (PG - Italy)

The Debian Project and the Debian Italian community are pleased to
announce that the 5th edition of the Debian Italian community
conference will take place from the 17th to the 19th of September in
Perugia, Italy. For the first time, the conference has been organized
in association with the Italian Ubuntu community[1], joining efforts
with the traditional Italian Ubuntu Meeting. For the occasion the
conference has been renamed to "Italian Debian/Ubuntu Community
Conference"[2] (DUCC-IT '10 for short) and will focus on bringing
together both communities and improving cross-distribution
collaboration. Users, contributors, and enthusiasts of Debian, Ubuntu,
and any other Debian-based distribution are invited to attend. The
event will also be an opportunity to celebrate the annual Software
Freedom Day[3] in Italy, which will be co-located in the city of

The conference will see the prominent participation of the current
Debian Project Leader, Stefano Zacchiroli, and some members of both
Debian-women[5] and Ubuntu-women[6] teams, explaining
the benefits of a wider collaboration scheme, and how we
encourage a more heterogeneous and balanced environment.

Scheduled events currently include some major technical tracks, aimed
toward new contributors, and practical sessions on Saturday, as well as
social launches, a key-signing party[7] and a round table discussion
about female participation in the Italian free software world[8] on
the other days. More information and logistical details are available
on the Debian wiki[9], or directly on the conference website[10] 
(in Italian).
