Interesting idea, something like the Spread Firefox campagne.
However before I'd like some general questions:
. What would we want to achieve with the ad?
spread the word that there's a new release of the universal operating
system and you can use it now on your servers and desktops.
. Where should it be printed?
. Who prepares the ad?
us, after all this mailing list aims to make Debian famous. :-P
. How large should it be?
(Maybe smaller depending on less money?)
I think at least a page or half. It would be good if we can put it in
more than one media, IMHO.
. What exactly should be referenced?
dunno, but maybe we've somebody here 'in the loop' on the ad thing. I
will prepare a image soon, just a sketch.
