Thank you for forwading this. After a quick chat on IRC, we thought the
best is doing a blog post in bits.debian.org. This post will be appear
on planet and in identi.ca automatically. And we'll use the post to
add a blurb in the next DPN.
For the record, the post will also appear automatically in unofficial's
Debian twitter and facebook. And semi-manually in Debian's unofficial G+
The blog post has the advantage we also can add photo, video, etc.
And it also supports translations now, so I guess besides English we should
push it in French and German too at the very least.
If you can join #-publicity to coordinate the draft there would be great.
