The www.debian.org homepage shows an RSS feed called "News" that in fact
displays the last announcements, some of them from many many months ago.
Newcomers and those curious about Debian may get the wrong impression of the
actual level of activity that is going on in the project.
On the other side of the page, there are several items in the menu: we have
"News", "Project News", "Events", "The Debian blog", "Planet" and
but they are not in the same section.
My proposal for reorganization is:
1.- rename the current "News" RSS feed to "Announcements" (if agreed, we
should rename the subsequent pages too...)
2.- Before "Announcements", create a new section "News", with link to
issue of DPN (or its short RSS), plus a line with "Read more news about
in the Debian blog (link), our feed in the pump.io network (link) or the
3.- Then, group all the news items in the "News" menu:
"Announcements", "Project News", "Events", "The Debian blog", "Planet" and
(Not sure if including "Developer News" or not). I believe we have no
translations for that.
(Not sure if keeping the images for planet and for identi.ca in the
identi.ca one is outdated. I could try to create a new one).
Another approach for "2" (or in addition to it) could be to display the
identi.ca feed (using the script that Paul Wise wrote in
identica.py ). But we have no translations for the identi.ca feed, that
would be in English only.
