I think a bit more stuff than just the logo and slogan will promote sales a

My humble (and mostly crazy) suggestions:

DotGNU = Webservices + Freedom
DotGNU: Freedom for webservices.
DotGNU: Free, Secure, Powerful
DotGNU: Guarding the freedom of the future net.
DotGNU: Free software for the future.
DotGNU: Free software for a new web.
DotGNU: The new web needs free software.
DotGNU: Stampeding into the new web.
Stop internet passports, use DotGNU.
Stop the invasion of the web, use DotGNU.
Stop the evil empire, use DotGNU.
Stop the monopolization of the web, use DotGNU.
Resistance isn't futile, use DotGNU.
But another matter: if this plan works we'll be getting quite a heavy load of
newbies stampeding (to use a gnu term :-) in here so we should start thinking
about how to help newbies get into the work.

We could start with putting up a TODO Wiki page as suggested by Eric Altendorf.
Also IMHO we should appoint a newbie working group with people in it who can
help newbies find their way into the project (I volunteer to be on this working
group). This working group could have regular IRC meetings where newbies can ask
questions, a special newbie mailing list may also be useful (though I know there
is some resistance to having lot's of lists).
