Sorry, my fault.

Others need to speak up since I probably won't find time to staff the
booth and would reject any shift Thimo assigns to me.

That costs one day.  If that day is not available, it should not be
done, because there's no time left over for corrections and fixing
other disasters.

I believe that, for this LinuxTag exhibition, 3 and 4 are not possible due
to no time for discussing design, phrasing, impact and corrections.  For
a general goal, I'd vote for 4, of course.

Re 1: Michael Meskes and me were chatting about this for a while, Michael
will try to use all remaining flyers at least, so regardless of new flyers,
they may not need to be thrown away.

2 is worse than 1, because the flyers from 2000 contain a lot of general
information like Freedom, community, cintinuity, stability etc. which
is still true and very important for the public view of Debian.
