    Got that latest or greatest scoop? Perhaps you have some important news for the Debian community? Submit a news item!

    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    General feedback should be sent to staff@debianplanet.org

    The place to get help on a Debian problem (after reading docs) or to just chat and chill is #debian on irc.oftc.net.

    Many of the Debian Planet staff live there so pop by and say hello.

    Debian Planet also has its own channel on the same network called #debianplanet.

    Ask Debianplanet…
    Submitted by ressu on Friday, March 30, 2001 – 08:27
    Every now and then we get submissions to Ask Debianplanet which have a direct question, what to do when something happends…
    All these questions should be sent to debianHELP and not to us, the Ask Debianplanet section is ment for questions that are non-techie stuff, like.. how does the debian organization keep track who uploads what
    We cannot quarantee answers for all these questions, but we will do our best to investigate and explain.The questions that have been sent to us have (usually) been forwarded to debianHELP, so if you sent us a question it’s most likely you will find it there.

    Netsnipe: We often get questions in the submissions queue that are either too vague or too broad to be turned into an article without more elaboration. More often than not, we cannot even help with an individual reply to simple questions or to ask one to elaborate his/her submission as they regularly don’t even have any contact details within them. So attach contact details if you ever have questions.

    “We cannot quarantee”

    *Please* check your spelling before you post.
    Who do you think you are, Cmdrtaco?

    …because spelling counts.
