http://www.debian.org/intro/organization lists you and Alexander Schmehl as 
being behind events@debian.org, who are responsible for this part of the 

I personally think that 1.+2. are _partly_ related to the fact, that 
www.debian.org is maintained in wml in cvs, and not, say, in ikiwiki with a 
more modern revision control system. 

Obviously a wiki doesnt fix everything, but IMO we need to make it easier to 
contribute. (A staging area in a wiki where _everybody_ can submit stuff 
would be such a thing. Not everybody needs to be able to move this to the 
official debian news section (whereever that is) but IMO everybody from the 
www-team should be able to do so, therefore cc:ing debian-www@l.d.o.)

Also to answer 2. again: people write stuff and post it to their blogs (or 
some lists too). It is just not moved.

BTW, http://times.debian.net/?category=event-announce also doesnt list 
FOSS.in, nor does the news frontpage section of wiki.debian.org (which I 
explain with the fact, that people use blogs and that we have two news sites 


BTW2, editmoin (just out of NEW) sounds promising too.

BTW3: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/News and 
http://www.skolelinux.org/en/node/3 doesnt really look better :( - Debian Edu 
certainly welcomes contributors and is happy to give write access easily. 
Contact debian-edu@lists.debian.org or me if you are interested.
