I'm not sure how long this would take, and if it makes sense to really
put it on the agenda.  I think we sort of agree that it is a good idea
to try it out with a package.  How about a demonstration, so someone
prepares to use git with a package, and will insert it before an
audience, so we can see how things work, and if it has benefits for us?

I like that better as well. :-)  Seriously, I think it would be good to
talk about how to get/keep people motivated.  We can use Barry as the
main example during that talk. ;-)

They only pay trips for europeans (maybe even only EU?)  However, AFAIUI
Sam has said that non-europeans can be sponsored by Debian.  So Barry,
please see if you can arrange that.  I look forward to seeing you again.
