I send you a first draft of the post. Can you review it? And of course,
you can translate it to Spanish, I'll push the translation in the repo.

Status: draft

The Debian Electronics Team is happy to announce that the latest version of
Arduino, probably the most widespread platform for programming AVR
micro-controllers, is now [packaged and uploaded onto Debian unstable][1].

The last version of Arduino that was readily available in Debian was 1.0.5,
which dates back to 2013. It's been years of trying and failing but
finally, after a great months-long effort from Carsten Schoenert and Rock
Storm, we have got a working package for the latest Arduino. After over 7
years now, users will be able to install the Arduino IDE as easy as *"apt
install arduino"* again.

*"The purpose of this post is not just to announce this new upload but
actually more of a request for testing"* said Rock Storm. *" The title could
very well be _WANTED: Beta Testers for Arduino_ (dead or alive :P)."*. The
Debian Electronics Team would appreciate if anyone with the tools and
knowledge for it could give the package a try and let us know if he/she
finds any issues with it.

This post is the opportunity to thank every previous contributors to the
package and the members of the Debian Electronics Team. This feat would
have not been achievable without them.
