This talk will explain what tries to achieve, why and how, also looking for feedback and actual participation in this project!

Join the party! is an effort to give back to the community that has a great share in making debian the universal OS that it is. Many people contribute to Debian: obviously the developers and package maintainers, but also translators and artists and everybody who files bugs or helps someone else on a mailing list. If you want to be part of the debian-community, but dont want to become a developer or maintainer, Debian didn't, so far, offer you much in reward.

So this (still somewhat whacky :) idea was born, to offer a nice email-address to anybody who wants one (and did at least a little for debian) and to setup planet(s), which will aggregate more than just the developers and wannabe-developers. And, of course, we want to promote ("sell") t-shirts, because everybody loves t-shirts and they are an excellent way to show about what you care!

Other ideas how to improve the community, so that more people have fun contributing to the universal OS, are very welcome!
