There's no need to be a DD to contribute to Debian :-)

I think it does, actually. It moves the point from "nobody has written a 
page yet" to "do we want to?"

I think there is no mailing list FAQ yet. Maybe it should be written and 
available from lists.debian.org

Unknown, search engines don't (fully) disclose the algorithms they use.

Well, I think it makes thing worse, but maybe things need to get worse
before they start getting better. I really don't know. Maybe even having
Debian be the first hit on "hot babes" can derive people that would be
happily watching pXrn to contributing in an universal OS. Who knows

BTW. You did not CC: 289876@bugs.debian.org, I'm not sure if this is 
deliberate or not, do you mind if I bounce this mail there?
