So, how are the preparations going? What are you doing, what have you
already planned, what have you decided, what issues are you
struggling with? Where can I get this information?

Fair enough. It need not be a sequential process though. They can
happen at the same time.

I read all the lists regularly, so I don't need the Weekly News.
Nevertheless, Debian's available in German, and yet, there is no
German newsletter. And that with such a big portion of debian-devel
and debian-users speaking German firstly.

Of course. You are missing my point.

It's not teasing. I want information, so I ask directly. I want to
help you back up the points of critique you, as a member of LPI-DE,
have brought against our group. As it stands, I am led to believe that
there's more talk than action. I would be glad to be proven wrong.
