Please announce the IRC debate on debian-devel-announce

I was not aware, until now, that there was going to be an IRC debate today
(22:00 UTC IIRC). IMHO such an event should be sent to
debian-devel-announce (Since many developers have limited the # of lists
they have suscribed to).

On question: will the debate be published at vote.debian.org?

Also, just for the record, here are some questions for the debate (which I
wont be able to attend, unfortunately):
[David, you already have them, I'm just reposting them since I didn't
receive an ACK]

1.- Do you think that translators, people involved in i18n, and people
involved in documentation-only work should be given maintainer status even
though they are not going to maintain packages or infrastructure? How
should the NM process be modified in order to provide for this?

2.- Do you believe Debian has to actively look for business partners in
order to be "certified" as part of broader IT solutions? What kind of help
will major companies get from Debian if you were DPL? (This is not a
'non-free' kind of question, BTW, it's a major caveat for companies to
adopt Debian as a distribution of choice when the hardware vendors do not
'support' Debian as an operating system in their solutions)

3.- What do you believe the involvement of the Technical Comitee should be
wrt fundamental differents in developers or major issues which hold back
the development of the distribution as a whole? Do you view the Technical
Comitee work as an active role (i.e. urging for things to be done or asking
resources coming from the NM queue to cooperate in things lacking instead
of making their pet projects) or as a passive role (i.e. endpoint of
discussions between developers in the BTS when no agreement is reached)

4.- What is the number one thing you will take an active role as DPL to fix
in the Debian distribution? (not the project) What actions would you take,
if elected, to fix it?

5.- What is your standpoint in Debian vs. the others? In which areas do you
think Debian should cooperate with other distributions? (save the LSB,
think about GPLd software which is produced by commercial distributions,

6.- What would you, as a DPL, do to help improve areas in which developers
are not that much willing to contribute to and which are usually lacking?
(for example: documentation)
