And just let me add a little remark to this (which is already known by everybody involved, but still…) debian-women is the name of the group that was created because of a specific problem Debian had, and has had quite a bit of success (if not so much numerically, behaiourally and culturally yes). But if debian-women as re-formed today, it would probably be called debian-inclusiveness or something like that. It just does not stop at welcoming women and making Debian a gender-agnostic place. And, guys and girls in d-women, you are for me one of the most inspiring, hard-working and most admirable parts of the project.
