I've been invited too but my job is currently eating up most of my
time. That is why I cannot attend myself.

One of my concerns is the cooperation with upstream developers. Matt
Zimmerman has blogged about that at
<http://mdzlog.alcor.net/2010/08/02/debconf-10-day-2/> (scroll to the
Java packaging nightmare). It would be a nice idea to cooperate with
Ubuntu, SUSE, and other distros to improve awareness of the needs and
principals of Free Software distros on the upstream developer's side.
