You've done a great job.
And, I just realized you are probably blocking on an answer to this
question. I couldn't really come up with an answer so, I'd say
probably say go with a list of two, so we have brochure.
For those who haven't looked at brochure recently, the list tony mentioned is:
More than just talks
Sponsoring the Debian Conference will help cover the costs of the
conference and facilitate related activities:
• Hands-on coding and hacking sessions interleaved with the workshops and talks.
• (Being removed) Debian Day, an event focused on users and decision
makers to discover the benefits of Free Software.
• Planned social interactions to inspire and strengthen collaboration
year-round.Some ideas I am not happy with:
Some ideas I came up with (that I don't love, but please feel free to
run with any that you could work into something useful):
"Collaborate on big picture issues that just can't easily be done remotely."
"Meet upstream developers."
"Meet with downstream developers."
"Meet with sponsors."
"Celebrate the diversity of the Debian Development family."
"Team building sessions"
Anyway, that's all I could come up with, but we do need the brochure
to be finalized so we can start fundraising.
