Not at all. The organization is done by Symbiois . I sorta pitch in
now and then but that's about it. Its all their baby.

Put it up. Frankly I am no developer so wouldn't really know what
would be good for having debian. Right from showing off the new
installer (which I could do) to something more sophisticated but
that's your call.
There is also a possibility of BoF that you could think of.

Hmm.... that is good idea, unfortunately a desktop user here - me.

Its not just me, it has to be what the debian community in India and
those who will be there in GNUnify.in have to think or share about.
One of the possibilities could be perhaps to talk/share about some of
the packages which are in Debian and are not so much known (either
because they serve niche purposes or they are just not well-known ?)
For e.g. I enjoy/love BOINC and have been a BOINC user for the last
2-3 years. Now that wouldn't be Debian but it is part of the Debian
package repository and something like volunteer passive computing that
many people could take up. There are 8000 of us in India but its still
a miniscule number as what could be .
Just few ideas of top of my head.
I will send you my contact details in a seperate mail in case if you
feel like talking on the phone, figuring something out etc.
