The revue de presse of La Quadrature Du Net needs volunteers!

Initially the responsibility reposed on the shoulders of only one, thought not always the same, person but is now a fun team that works well together. However, what we manage still falls somewhat short of what we wish the LQDN could do. Which is why we're always on the lookout for new "PR" enthusiasts. The topics we cover are at heart of this century's challenges and you can join in, not only reading the news, but also contributing by organising it for others!

To clarify: On #lqdn-rp we do the following (in French):
- http://www.laquadrature.net/fr/revue-de-presse et
- http://www.laquadrature.net/fr/press-review

The aim of the revue de presse, in French and English, gathers articles that quote or mention La Quadrature but also articles on our topics in order to provide a list of relevant articles on the different dossiers for public use.

Short summeries and links to these articles are published on our website, via RSS and twitter and thus reach thousands of persons including a large number of journalists.

Process: Interesting articles are first sent, via the !rp link command in #laquadrature to a list at laquadrature.net/rp
They are then given points by everyone on the team according to how relevant they are. If and when they reach 3 points, this article is marked to be published. These articles will be "converted" into a drupal node on LQDN website which provides the means to summarise the article, add tags and get it into format ready to be published. An image of the article's website is automatically included.


D'où l'on passe les liens rentrés en revue, pour leur donner une note. C'est un travail auquel tout le monde peux prendre part. C'est hautement parallélisable, et la raison d'être du canal #lqdn-rp sur freenode, est de pouvoir se synchroniser les uns les autres pour ne pas travailler à deux sur le même article.

Ensuite, les articles choisi (avec une bonne note donc), sont "convertis" en noeud drupal, pages du site web d'LQDN.
Et c'est là encore un travail pour lequel tout le monde peux facilement filer un coup de main et de manière ponctuelle, article par article... Sans même avoir vraiment besoin de connaître le sujet sur le bout des doigts puisque les articles ont alors déjà été choisi. C'est un très bon moyen pour commencer et découvrir le sujet, l'éco-système politique... Et puis, il n'y a pas vraiment moyen de faire de bourdes, vu que les noeuds sont ensuite validés avant leur mise en ligne.

For more information on how to create a drupal node: (In French) http://www.laquadrature.net/wiki/Revue_de_presse

To start, you have to ask vinci for a login to the rp/ tool and Siltaar for a Drupal account.

Joining the press review team is really a great way to contribute to not only to la quadrature, but also more generally, to the movement that defends and promotes free and open software, net neutrality, defense of privacy...

We'll be expecting you on #lqdn-rp@irc.freenode.org :)
