What does "advertisement" specifically mean here?  If it is an official
mail for the press, then I agree, but for any other meaning not, i.e. I
think every event should have its own message on the debian-events-*
mailing list (and unfortunately it is a pity that there is not a
worldwide debian-events mailing list).

Fully ACK, the major problem I see ATM is that sometime I read about
events on Planet or other sources instead of "proper" mailing lists
(i.e. the debian-events-* ones).
