Attracting new volunteers to Debian using stackoverflow.com


I originally posted this in -devel, but was pointed here as a better
place to discuss this issue.

stackoverflow.com, which is a website featuring questions and answers on
a wide range of topics in computer programming, has just offered [1]
free advertising for open source projects wanting to advertise
recruiting of new volunteers.

They get about 1 million page-views per day from developers, so asking
for new volunteers in stackoverflow.com will raise awareness of debian
needing new maintainers.

What do you think? Should we offer a Debian related ad? Does anyone know
a graphic designer or someone that can whip up a nice
ad which will attract developers to debian?
