Bug#643647: lists.debian.org: please create debian-events-announce

Package: lists.debian.org
Severity: wishlist
Usertags: debian-events

Hi there!

As discussed during the DebConf11 Events BoF [1], here is the request
for a new debian-events-announce@ mailing list.  Cc:ing the
debian-publicity@ and debian-www@ lists, as well as the events@d.o team
to look for second, please keep (at least) the events@d.o team in the

Here is the requested information as per [2].

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

    We already have well-established regional debian-events-*@ mailing
    lists (-eu, -ha, -na and -nl), but this are mostly used for
    coordination.  The new list, on the contrary, should get email
    notifications whenever a new event is added to the website.

    Please note that while the long description for the debian-news@
    mailing list reads "the current *events* and news about Debian are
    summarized in the Debian Weekly News, a newsletter regularly posted
    on this list" (emphasis is mine), the fact that the Debian Weekly
    News does not exist anymore and that the frequency of its
    replacement (the Debian Project News) is not (yet) defined means
    that the debian-news@ list is IMHO not suitable for such task.

Short description:
    Announcements of Debian-related events


Subscription Policy:

Post Policy:
    Restricted to some teams: Events (all of the members), Publicity
    (basically, the Press team) and WWW (if someone wants to).
    In principle, those who can commit to www.d.o/events/ should be able
    to send a post as soon as they add a new event.

    Alternatively, posting can be restricted to the Events and Press
    team only, using the following workflow: whoever adds a new event
    also sends the announcement to the debian-publicity@ list for
    reviews, then a member of the Events and Press team posts that to
    this new list.
