I do believe that Debconf is an ideal place for this - Having 150 of
us together might mean having 40 of us interested in joining this
discussion, brainstorming (and shouting at each other) for ~2hr
instead of over 600 messages, and coming up with something similar to
the Vancouver stuff - a summary of the points reached, not a firm
decision... But a summary with more adherents. And more people
convinced by the release and ftp teams on what and why (or people in
those teams convinced back, or... whatever :) )

Of course, if you cannot make it to Debconf, you will know about the
discussion results. In fact, Debconf plans to capture audio/video of
the sessions at the auditoriums, so you might even participate via

I intended to propose this topic for a round table, but was asked to
wait on this by one of the release members, as they were close to
announcing the Vancouver stuff... Anyway, I am not formally proposing
it, but I do expect it to happen - After all, we will be in HEL ;-)
