helping the team: some easy taks
Are you lurking and you don't know how to help? The following ideas are pending
items, that we think would be easier for a newcomer with a bit of time.
If you want to help and you have any question, join #debian-publicity in
irc.oftc.net and ask :)

# Wiki page in how to unsubscribe from Debian Mailing lists
Some people subscribe to Debian announcement lists, such as debian-announce@,
debian-news@, debian-security@ etc and later they want to unsubcribe and don't
remember how. Often, they end up mailing to the Debian person who sent the
announcement email and when you get a few requests is a bit annoying.
Having a wiki page with the detailed steps, and maybe a couple of screenshots,
on how to unsubscribe would be a great improvement to reply to this kind of
emails. It would also offer the possibility to add translations in the wiki
and would be easily picked up by search engines.
This page could be a subsection of https://wiki.debian.org/DebianMailingLists
or just create a new one https://wiki.debian.org/DebianMailingLists/HowToUnsubscribe

# review DPN: typos and dead links

translations. For example:
