Why aren't Debian releases being announced on Distrowatch?
I was wondering why Debian releases aren't being announced on Distrowatch.
During this year, besides the release of Squeeze on Februrary, there have
been 5 more releases (Lenny 5.0.8/9 and Squeeze 6.0.1/2/3). However, the
only announcement published on Distrowatch during 2011 is the one from
February 6th, regarding Squeeze 6.0.
There's also a similar situation on Freshmeat (no announcements were made
during 2010, and only one has been made in 2011).
AFAICS, publishing those announcements is part of the established
procedure for new releases  and point releases .
I realize that maybe the publicity team has too many things to handle ATM,
but on the other hand I believe it would be important to make those
I'm not a member of the publicity team, and not even a regular contributor
yet. But I'd be glad to help with this task if no one has the time to do
