I think this is very nice news! Your mail, with probably very few
changes, can be posted as an article in bits.debian.org. This way we
would get good audience coverage (bits goes to planet, gets
translations, and we also publish a micronews for every article there).

If you or any publicity contributor wants to start, the repo is here:


and we have a template.md file there. The file would go in the
content/2021 folder and you can put "Status: draft" until it's ready for
publishing. The authors would be Rock Storm + the person adapting and
reviewing the text.

If nobody steps ahead very soon, I can do it during the weekend, and
publish on Monday or Tuesday.

Kind regards,
Laura Arjona Reina
