Re: Debian Magazine

Hash: SHA1

Hello Jeremiah,

Have a project that requires collaboration and planning for the
idealization, the main idea is to create an e-zine, and I think we can
plan for it to be distributed online.
This project is called DebianZine.org


Let's think about the planning I believe we can make a good zine. One
example that we have is the Full Circle.


Kind Regards
