Re: Debian's 25th anniversary

The quarter century anniversary! Good ideas. I think a stand alone DPN
would be ideal if we could find content for it such as interviews with
long standing and still current enterprises or LUGs or companies that
have been using Debian for a long time. We could add bits from the
timeline as well.

I wonder if we would have enough time for a 25th anniversary art contest
for the banner/logo?
