I like your ideas.
Maybe what we lack is a "Welcome team" for DebConf orga. And this is an issue
for new contributors to the team, being them local or not.
A clear policy/roadmap would definitely help, as well as having people around
paying attention and replying those "I want to help but I don't know why"
messages. Also, having a separate IRC channel and mailing list for volunteers
that don't want to go deep into dc orga discutions but what to help with specific
tasks seems like a good thing to me, and I think Marga's and Bernelle's concerns
would be addressed here.
And as people get more involved and want to contribute even more, they could
subscribe do debconf-team and eventually join a specific team.
How do the other folks feel about it?
