Well I think it's a great place to be :) And I'm glad to learn when
others like it too.

What do you think is different about Debian or Debian Women that makes
you feel more welcomed here compared with other places? What are we
doing right and wrong in that, do you think? I would like to have
Debian Women as welcoming as possible to the "right" kind of person (ie
people who are genuinely interested in Debian and in increasing the
participation of women in Debian), so comments about that are always

That is fantastic work!
I don't know whether Christian Perrier is still collecting recordings of
voices saying "welcome to you new Debian system", or whatever it was, in
different languages. But he might well like to add Vietnamese to the
collection, if you'd like to help with that (there was a thread about
that project on the Debian Women list a couple of months ago ).
