What time schedule do you keep? (I'd ask what time zone you are in,
but that doesn't necessarily indicate when you're awake or sleeping
:D) I'd like to see if we can schedule a online chat while this is all
fresh in our minds. There is almost always someone awake on
#fedora-mktg, so if you have a time convenient to you, let us know.
Thanks for your help!

Robyn and I were hacking on the Talking Points SOP last night for the
Marketing team, and it came up that you'd populated the Fedora 13 talking
points page with some of the features to use for talking points and were
curious as to how you'd come up with which to list, so that we could document
the brain functions behind it for the rest of the world :-). We're trying to
document the standard procedures to create those pages for future releases,
and your opinion would be much appreciated :-)
Is there any chance you could meet us in #fedora-mktg at some point in the
near future to discuss it?

So we have a few things going on at SCALe 8x, 19 to 21 Feb in Los
Angeles, CA. These are newsworthy, such that we think it's worth
cranking up the joint Red Hat-Fedora PR mechanisms. What are they?
Here's what is going on, in a nutshell:
* Friday - Fedora Activity Day to work on Summer Coding and getting
ready for the coming Google Summer of Code.
* Friday - Women in Open Source - The self-described Fedora Mascots
are going to give a talk, "Ultimate Randomness - Girl
voices in open source." These are Larry's 12-year-old
and my 12- and 9-year-old daughters.
* Saturday - I give the 10 am keynote, "Being a Catalyst in Commnities
- The scientific facts about the open source way."
* Saturday - Richard Fontana talks at 4:30 on Sunday, "Improving the
Open Source Legal System."
* Sat/Sun - Fedora booth in the main expo hall (booth 43, straight in
the front doors, second cross-aisle, turn right, on the
left in the middle, where the [F] is:
Anything I'm missing?
What is Red Hat planning around PR for this event?
What can we do together?
As we did last year, Fedora Ambassadors will be making out some flyers
publicizing Fedora and Red Hat talks. So far, Richard's is the main
one I see, but there is also a Sugar presentation we might want to
name: Karsten 'quaid' Wade, Sr. Community Gardener
team: Red Hat Community Architecture
To help users discover the Linux distribution that's best for them,
this resource will definitively list the best candidates for the
various types of Linux users to try. The use-case categories will be:
Best Desktop Distribution
Best Laptop Distribution
Best Enterprise Desktop
Best Enterprise Server
Best Security-Enhanced Distribution
Best Multimedia Distribution
Note: Fedora isn't listed for any of the above.
Would have been interesting to see something like "Best Distro for
Community Participation" or "Best Distro for Engineers".....
A few of us gathered in #fedora-mktg after the meeting and talked about
talking points. Here's what we have so far - full logs available at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Marketing_meetings#2010 (direct link at
More coming tonight - we'll be working on the SOP for Talking Points
tonight - but please, if you have ideas or thoughts on how we should be
going about talking points, feel free to strike up the conversation now. :)
* Talking points are essentially a distillation of technical innovations
that are part of the feature process. Those innovations appear in the
Feature List. Some of those innovations are obviously desktop
related. But many come from other areas that are important to large
groups of users like system administrators and developers.
* LINK: g definition? (mchua, 21:13:58)
* that's the email where Paul tried to clear up a bit of a
misunderstanding. (mchua, 21:14:36)
* AGREED: Spin owners can use the SOP to create talking points for
publication on their spin pages (stickster, 21:23:13)
* ACTION: tonight, we should finish the first round SOP, which should
contain those date-milestone-type-things you've just been mentioning,
and publish that as "here is the plan we currently intend to follow,
feedback/patches welcome." (mchua, 21:47:27)
* ACTION: set a meeting time for Fri/Mon (pick one) to (1) freeze a
snapshot of the SOP, taking into account any feedback, and (2)
prepopulate with sample content and announce. (mchua, 21:48:43)
