Can you explain why you think it's not proper? It seems to be the common
term with other distributions:

To me, It brings to mind a sense of commercial business interest as
the primary goal. It commodotizes gNewSense, losing sight of its
socio-political underpinnings in the process.

That's how I view it.

Wiktionary describes marketing as:

The promotion, distribution and selling of a product or service; includes market research and advertising

We don't do market research, but we might in the future. We don't sell gNewSense, but we don't mind if other people do. We should even encourage hardware resellers to sell their machines with gNewSense. We might sell merchandise if we ever need more funds (or just as part of our promotion effort), but that doesn't mean commercial business interests will be our primary goal.

I don't see a need to call it anything else but Marketing Team. I'd say it's mostly for internal use anyway. It's about promoting gNewSense, not about the team that promotes it.

A snazzy name that sticks in people's minds couldn't hurt, of course. In that respect Advocacy Team or Promo Team are not better than Marketing Team. Libre People would get noticed because it's not a standard term, but I feel it still doesn't have the ring to it that would make people turn their heads. A really good name would be something equivalent to "Playboy Bunnies".
