I agree strongly with your underlying theme, although I'd characterize
it slightly differently. It's not just about marketing, which sounds
sort of frivolous and underhanded... it's actually about governance.
Governance sort of implies that there are agreed-upon principles that a
cohesive community shares. I think marketing is a better fit for the
open source bazaar. ;-) In a way, DragonFly is trying to sell itself,
a neat project to work on, and secondly, as a robust-yet-innovative
for computing. I don't think DragonFly needs to market itself in the
selling DragonFly-logo mousepads and tee-shirts (although they'd probably
sell :-) ),
I think it needs to make clear why you would want to a) choose to work on
it, and b)
choose to run it, over the alternatives.
