New paragraph on DPN: "Upcoming events"

[CC to events@debian.org as is also events-related]

Hi there, 
a couple of day ago, I've added a new paragraph on DPN, titled "Upcoming
events" in order to better promote debian-related events.
The idea is to gather informations not only about big events (as, for
example, FOSDEM) but also talks in Universities or LUG/Hackerspaces,
workshops, bug squashing parties.
This paragraph is intendend like a series of highlights on the 
www.debian.org/events page (which will remain the main official page about Debian
related events), and the hope is to convince people to notify us their events
more than now and create a sort of central archive of events which
could be of interest for debian users/developers.
In order to do this, at this moment I'm monitoring:
* the identi.ca Debian group
* lwn calendar of events
* http://grical.org/
* the Debian Events category on wiki.debian.org
* the debian-events-* mailing lists
* the DebianBSP category on wiki.debian.org
* http://fossevents.org/
* www.meetup.com/

The paragraph was written by me and Alexander Reshetov (eof) during the
last summer and Paul Wise (pabs) did a l10n-english review, and David
Prévot (taffit) also agreed on adding it.
My idea is to add events which will happen in the next (from DPN
release) ~15 days: virtually, successive events will be added in the next
Below the paragraph, any comment (and improvement) welcome!
