I was not aware of the existence of this project, I was simply
brainstorming an idea. Considering this, I agree that it is much more
efficient for people to join an already existing project (that would not
have to waste time on organization, as a new one would) such as
Debian's. What's more, despite this being distro-specific, their
announcements are public, and therefore communication between multiple
distros would not be an issue and double-work between them can be easily
avoided. Thanks for the catch, Bill.
