Re: Advertizing Debian Astro 1.0
thank you so much for taking some efforts in advertising Debian Astro!
At least I fail greatly with that...
I am very happy with the proposed entry in the Debian Project News;
please publish it there.
To use the opportunity here: we definitely need more publicity. I feel
myself quite on my personal limits here. So, if anyone in our team wants
to make a bit more noise, that would be much appreciated.
