Re: Using social media channels for DC15

Right. DebConf ist an "official" project of Debian, so we would be
allowed to push stuff out that channel?

Oh, if I had known to look for "dents"… I thought that was some sort
of internal magic special hashtag thing. I am clearly to old for
social networking ;)

Okay, this workflow is doable, but if we plan to send 100 of those
over the next year, wouldn't direct access be better?

We won't be able to jump on and help while in the process of
organising DC15. However, I read your comment to mean "if you want
DC15-related stuff pushed out, it would be best if one or two people
from your team joined d-publicity and did it themselves."

If that is correct, then can you give me a quick idea of the
process? I want to send out http://titanpad.com/lwJuODjrAL one of
these days to get DC15 press work started.

I like the idea of publishing an RSS feed, including a tag such as
microblog, and then having "consumers" to proxy the news bits to the
various channels out there. Now someone just has to do it. I think
this would make a great GSoC project or the like.
