My view as one of the press officers is that I'll issue press releases
for newsworthy[0] items that the *project* has done, and DPN should have
news items that are informative to people interested in the project.

Thus, the launch of a new derived distribution, for example, would make
a good entry in DPN, but I wouldn't issue a press release for it.
