According to the website CVS repository, the last german translation of
the DPN was in 2010. So yes, it has been quite a long time without
german DPN.

That would be great if you can provide such translations.
We (try to) have a new issue released every two weeks. It is often
ready on Friday night (european time), at least that is what we aim for.
And it is published on the next monday, which leaves some time for
review and translation.
If you can prepare the translation and have it reviewed by the
debian-l10n-german@ mailing list by monday, and commit it in the
publicity SVN repository, I will happily publish it together with the
english and french version. Ask to join the publicity group on Alioth.


You can also try to see (maybe with debian-l10n-german?) if a text
version could be sent to the debian-news-german mailing list (there is a
script DPNhtml2mail.pl wich can produce the text version from the one on
the website).

There are detailed instruction on the wiki for contributors:

If you want to translate older issue, you can
certainly ask the Debian webmasters for a commit access
to publish them directly on the website.

Great! There is never enough manpower. Feel free to propose topics and
write paragraphs whenever you feel ready.
