FWIW, as DPL I've always tried to use the "Debian Project"
capitalization (in interviews, official mails, and the like). I suggest
to use such capitalization in -publicity authored documents.

I think I originally took it from the Debian Constitution where all
occurrences are capitalized as Debian Project (except one, which I've
always considered to be a typo). I also have the impression that the
Press team prefers such capitalization, although I can't speak for them.
