Indeed, the form, duration and pace are all very good in this video.
However, if I understand correctly, your initiative mainly targets
potential newcomers. I am not sure they will understand the connection
here, and they will quickly ask how to display the patches DAG in darcs.
Also, from a communication POV, the title of the video does not match
well with the date of the video ( we are on darcs.net and the video is
"why we continue to develop Camp" and is from 2008 :] )

I don't dismiss the great work on this camp video itself. It is just
that if some darcs user has time to make a 2012 darcs video (name hit :
"darcs vs git"), based on the same idea, that would probably be more
suited for darcs website.
