I'd like Debian to be *THE* renowned distribution in terms of:

- freeness (a distro which is free the bottom up, not only in the
  software it ships, but also in the infrastructure it builds upon)

- democracy (a distro in which decisions are taken either do-ocratically
  or democratically, by all its members, i.e. where company money does
  not count in decision making)

In fact, we are already quite peculiar in both above two points, but we
are often not seen as such because we are not particularly good at
communicating them. I'd like Debian to fix that way earlier than 10
years from now :-)

Additionally, in ten years I'd like Debian to be:

- the most fun distro to contribute to

- the distro which drives innovation in the dpkg-half of the world
  (assuming the distro world will still be split between dpkg/rpm 10
  years from now ...)

- the center of an ecosystem of derivative distributions where each
  derivative collaborates daily with Debian in a mutual exchange of
  patches that benefit all parties
