The message was posted to debian-devel, not deity.

Point conceded.

The message was posted to debian-devel. None of our 300+ people are
volunteering and I have to recruit people from other distributions!

Again, I do not mean to diminish your contribution or demotivate you.

My concerns are increasingly with Debian's marketing. I've done well
in issues like the Official CD and the DFSG, but I find that asking
hackers to do marketing is like asking cats to swim. I think it's time
for us to assemble a marketing group that can speak with some authority
on these issues and collaborate with the technical group to increase
our user community.
