Debian Outreach Team Delegation

Sam Hartman-5
Dear Developers,

I am happy to announce the creation of the Debian Outreach Team. As
highlighted below in the official delegation, the Outreach Team is
responsible for coordinating Debian's participation in outreach programs
such as Google Summer of Code and Outreachy[1] (formerly GNOME's Outreach
Program for Women) -- but not limited to those two.

Initially, the team will be composed of Nicolas Dandrimont, Sylvestre Ledru,
Molly de Blanc and Tom Marble. Most of them have previous experience as
Debian GSOC and/or OPW admins. They can be reached at <[hidden email]>
(or will be -- pending DSA creation of the alias), and will have a web page
soon at <https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Outreach>.

There are also some Debian-only mentorship programs, such as the Debian
Women Mentoring Program[2], and DebianMed's Mentoring of the Month
(MoM)[3]. Those programs are currently outside of the scope of this
delegation, as they do not have the same needs in terms of coordination,
funding, selection and ranking.

Cheers,

Debian Outreach Team delegation
===============================

I hereby appoint the following developers as members of the Debian Outreach
Team:

- Nicolas Dandrimont (olasd)
- Sylvestre Ledru    (sylvestre)

Additionally, even though not officially delegated as they are not DDs yet,
Tom Marble and Molly de Blanc are also members of the Debian Outreach Team.

The delegation is not time-limited. It will be effective until further
changes by present or future DPLs.

Task Description
----------------

The Debian Outreach Team is responsible for coordinating the participation
of Debian in internship-like programs (including Outreachy and Google
Summer of Code). This involves:

- acting as a contact point for all topics related to Debian's
  participation into those programs

- when necessary, ensuring the funding of Debian's participation (by
  requesting the use of Debian funds to the DPL, by organizing fundraising
  campaigns, etc.)

- when necessary, establishing Debian-specific rules about who can apply for
  the various roles (mentors, participants) in those programs

- ranking and selecting applications -- generally, considering the feedback
  given by mentors and other reviewers

- coordinating the communication around Debian's participation into those
  programs
