Debian has 1000 developers.
IANADD, but I think I can get rid of 10 umbrellas (ok, I count in 3 DDs
I know :-/ ) or so.
LinuxLand is not the only shop selling Linux and Debian things.
In other words: I believe there are enough people spread all over the
world to make it possible. The only problem would be coordination - but
perhaps LinuxLand (or someone else with shop infrastructure) could be
convinced to do it?
I don't think I have the time to do coordination work on that scale
myself, though :-(

And, of course, with lower limits on the number to be produced.
