Talks, sprints and IRC meetings on www.d.o/events/ (was: Debian Med Sprints 2013 and brainstorming on 2014)

Hi there!

Mine was a question for the organizers ;-)

From now on there is nothing specific to the sprint above, but more
about how to notify the Debian Events Team of upcoming sprints and how
to properly show them.

Basically, the Events Team is already tracking most of the possible
announcement locations (a lot, including mailing lists, blogs, wikis),
so we should miss very few "events".

However, Francesca Ciceri prepared a wiki template for event submissions
which actually reflects the www.d.o/events format and the simplest
solution would probably be to use the same template for sprints:


Please note that we already started to fix #657297, i.e. we announced on
www.d.o/events something which is not really an "event", e.g.:


Mostly because of my not-taking-the-time-for-this, Francesca's patch in
#657297 about the separation between talk and events has not been
applied yet.  The more I think about it, the more I come to the
conclusion that I am not completely sure about the need for such a
separation (sorry, Francesca).

The easiest solution would be to simply prefix the type of event in the
title, as we are already doing for BSPs:

  general event -> (everything done as now)
  BSP -> Debian BSP at LOCATION
  talk -> Talk: TALK_TITLE
  sprint -> GROUP Sprint at LOCATION
  irc -> GROUP IRC meeting at CHANNEL

GROUP could be "Debian Med", "DebConf Team" or even "W3C", in case it
would not be a Debian-centered "event".

If we go down this road, however, we could probably need a way to
generate extra pages, e.g.:

Thx, bye,
