Do you want me a statistic about people who know about the CDD they
would be interested in according to their field of interest compared to
them who "should" know but do not.
I think we are to "self centric" if we assume that our target user group
is able to find the relevant information. I'Äm just sitting down to
continue reading my e-mail after a discussion with a person who said:
I'm working in the field of medicine and it is a shame that this
nice project GnuMed (medical practice management) did not issued
anything since 1999.
Well GnuMed does daily commits is perfectly present and easily findable
via Google. If we are lucky, people know Debian. CDDs can potentially
become famous on the back of Debian if they will be presented at a
prominent place / time in the install process. We should not ignore
this chance which saves us much time vor advertisement etc. Believe
me that our target users ignore Google and friends.
