It could be great to have an infographic about design aspects of Debian.

In fact, it could be great to have a clear overview of teams, processes,
etc. in Debian in general (with of course several infographics. Too much
informations in the same document is very hard to read) !

It can be useful for new contributors to have a clear overview of the
different processes and teams in which they are involved (dev, doc, graphic
design ...), and it can be useful and fun for older contributors too.

I'm new to debian and I don't really know about all these teams / processes
etc. Maybe we can discuss about it and pick what it is really useful to
communicate about.
