1.4. Ikuti Berita Debian

Seperti yang sudah disebutkan sebelumnya, proyek Debian berevolusi secara sangat terdistribusi, dan sangat organik. Sebagai konsekuensinya, bisa jadi sangat sulit untuk tetap mengetahui apa yang terjadi di dalam proyek tanpa harus pusing dengan notifikasi yang begitu banyak dan tak pernah berhenti.
If you only want the most important news about Debian, you probably should subscribe to the list. This is a very low-traffic list (around a dozen messages a year), and only gives the most important announcements, such as the availability of a new stable release, the election of a new Project Leader, or the yearly Debian Conference.
More general (and regular) news about Debian are sent to the list. The traffic on this list is quite reasonable too (usually around a handful of messages a month), and it includes the semi-regular “Debian Project News”, which is a compilation of various small bits of information about what happens in the project. Since all Debian developers can contribute these news when they think they have something noteworthy to make public, the DPN gives a valuable insight while staying rather focused on the project as a whole.
For more information about the evolution of Debian and what is happening at some point in time in various teams, there's also the list. As its name implies, the announcements it carries will probably be more interesting to developers, but it also allows interested parties to keep an eye on what happens in more concrete terms than just when a stable version is released. While gives news about the user-visible results, gives news about how these results are produced. As a side note, “d-d-a” (as it is sometimes referred to) is the only list that Debian developers must be subscribed to.
Sumber informasi informal dapat juga ditemukan pada Planet Debian, yang mengagregasi artikel yang ditulis oleh para kontributor Debian dalam blog-nya masing-masing. Isi-nya tidak secara eksklusif mengenai pengembangan Debian, mereka memberikan pandangan mengenai apa yang terjadi dalam komunitas dan apa yang sedang mereka lakukan.
Proyek Debian juga hadir dalam jejaring sosial. Sementara Debian hanya memiliki kehadiran secara resmi dalam platform yang dibuat dengan free software (seperti platform blogging Identi.ca, yang didukung oleh pump.io), terdapat banyak kontributor Debian yang mengelola akun Twitter, halaman Facebook, halaman Google+, dan masih banyak lagi lainnya.
