I agree this is a must have, no matter how much we've advertised what
-publicity does, how to use its "services", and how to contribute:
repetita iuvant, we'll always find new ears for that.  I cannot
volunteer right now to co-host the talk, as I've yet to understand the
various activities I'll propose at DebConf myself, but I'm available to
review the slides and discuss what you want to put into them (best thing
would probably be to post drafts to this list).

ACK, probably best if we can ensure that the BoF is scheduled after the
talk, so that potential newbies who get interested by the talk can
attend the BoF.

Who else will be at DebConf of our fellow -publicity readers?

Thanks for raising this topic!
