yeah, Linuxtag is the next event. If there will be a Debian booth is an open
question atm... :-/

sponsors or we could even pay for them on our own.

[3 more paragraphs about why a beamer is not really useful atm]

I wrote "banner", not "beamer" :-)

babelbox is actually in a state where its fire and forget.

I think a(nother) poster which will not be outdated with squeeze would also be
useful :-)

But you didnt even touch my main question: what do you think of Debian
spending 5000 USD (out of >100K it has) for helping preparing booths for the
next 2 years? (I assume in 2 years the box needs to be updated and we have
spent all money, ie. if we assume 5000 USD I would take 3-3.5k to buy stuff
for the box, and the rest to send the box around europe.)
