I think that we shouldn't be a force that can influence a
government or anything like that. However I believe that we could
support third party initiatives that already exists. For example
in France, we have several associations which are working to
promote free software (including within the government) and 
Debian's support may help them to be more credible.

This may be facilitated if we have local representatives
of Debian who can prepare announces to be submitted to
the press team.
