What Jonas meant here IIUC is it should be about *Debian* and not
something else like some people proposed of making "private
communication" as theme of it, then having name miniDebconf doesn't make

This is a chicken and egg problem which we are trying to solve, we
already have a Debian community however small it is.

Debian community here is not only Debian Developers it involves those
who use Debian who like Debian etc. Did we reach them before claiming we
don't have community?

Question we should ask ourselves first is did we reach every one who
uses Debian in one or other way? Does every one who uses Debian in India
knows about list debian-dug-in? If not how to reach them?

We do have our community its just that its scattered and not under same
roof, so miniDebconf should be platform to bring that community to same
roof and reach as much  of them possible.
