Thanks, however I'm taking a "sort of" vacation for several months and 
will not have net access beginning tomorrow night.  Since I won't be 
around, feel free to use or adapt any ideas I've proposed.

I concur with your suggestion of having someone maintain and oversee 
this section.  If you don't get any volunteers from this mention, try 
posting a description of the position and duties including a job title 
(Feature Editor?) and I think you might get a few responses.

Hopefully I'll be back by Autumn.  If you haven't got anyone to work on 
Debian webpage features by then, maybe we can find out if I'm any good 
at it.

Good idea.  No, I didn't mention it on debian-publicity.  Of course, 
like your webpage design, it is probably best to model the plan a 
little more before submitting for review and consideration.

It would be really nice if it became reality sometime close to the hamm
