 Hmm, I wonder if you never attended any of the Debian events in Germany
or Austria, because over here we have these things. There is a quite
living team around this that has a larger variety of goods like shirts,
keychains, posters and of course the flyers which are translated into
many languages and have an alioth project for them:

 Also the Debian UK people have a broad selection of shirts, did you
miss such events, too? I'm not saying that things can't get improved, I
am just totally puzzled by your wording and you making it sound like
that there isn't anything around these days...

 I also wonder if you really missed the
<http://www.debian.org/events/material> part of our website?
The /events/ pages are on our website for ages but more and more get
(actively?) ignored by a big part of Debian - but they aren't hidden in
any way and were always happy to welcome help. Do you want to start off
completely new - if so, why? If not, why didn't you mention the current
available stuff?

 So long,
