Well, just thinking a bit on this... If we get this TV ads, I think
the focus should be on promoting Debian, or even promoting Free
Software. Promoting DebianDay is, I feel, needless. On one hand, we
will have many people that the govt will send, as well as many people
genuinely interested. I do not expect to need more promotion at all -
And a DebianDay with 30 people can be successful even!

We want to promote Debian and Free Software. That's something we can
use a TV campaign to increase awareness of. But Moray's concerns are
right: What happens if we find ourselves with 1500 angry
Bosnians</stereotype> trying to enter a 300-person auditorium? Too
much of a success can be a failure.
