That's not a bad idea, but... Video production takes quite a lot of
effort, both human and CPU. If you would like to participate in a bug

On the whole, however, Debian already has its full share of people
with ideas. What we chronically have a shortage of is people who do
things. Suggesting new things for others to do is orders of magnitude
less useful than fixing or attempting to reproduce any of the reported
bugs, writing even a barebones tutorial on the wiki, or helping someone
with whatever problem they may have when using Debian.
Could we perhaps entice you, Philip, to make a change to Debian instead
of suggesting things for us to do?
