Well, I'm more of the view that I think the project would like to know
what the DPL has been up to, which may involve engaging with groups or
people who aren't using DFSG software. This also helps spread Debian and
free software more widely. (ie: I suspect that people who only use
entirely free software probably have an idea about what Debian is

Should any of the other alternatives wish me to write a foreword, I'll
be happy to do so and include it in my next bits mail :)
