I basically agree with Erinn on this, and also I'm not sure what to do about it,
 or even whether anything needs to be done.

Does anyone have ideas about what they would like to see Debian Women doing that
 we are not currently doing?  I think that maybe we need some people with new
enthusiasm to coordinate some little projects that others might be interested
in, to get things more fired up again.

Any volunteers, thoughts, opinions, ...?
