I don't think we should announce every event with its own advertisement,
but only the important and special ones.  Where special is not easily to

For example, a small MiniDebConf taking place in a region, where rarely
an Debian related event takes place (e.g. Vietnam) should announced.
Participation on a quite specialised conference (e.g. the neuro science
thing) should IMHO also announced.  The first one, because it shows we
do care about the "small things", too, the later one, because it's
special and awesome if we get invited there :)

Debian participating at yet another smallish event organised by a German
Linux User Group in a town even the German cabal doesn't find on the map
surely doesn't.

Nevertheless all events should be listed on the events page, and should
be mentioned in an "upcoming events" section of the DPN (which I grant I
nearly always forget).

Best regards,
