this is a short summary of where we are and what is still left to do for this
Done or in progress
* Gold Master declared.
* Feeding mirrors with the Gold Master and extra isos
* Promo DVDs ordered
* Press kit in progress.
Will be done (extracted from the Action Plan)
* Finish the Highlight page and the Release announcement.
* Once the Highlight page and the Release announcement are done (Monday), we
will add them to the wiki. We will do this.
* We would like to publish this for release the announcement and, if possible,
the highlight page, in several languages, so the impact is bigger in places
where English is not the mother tongue.
On Monday (probably late) we will point translators to these pages in English
so they have Tuesday to translate. This is not optimal, but at least it is an
improvement. We will have more time in the next release.
Max Lin, our team member in Taiwan, will be the link for this task. If any of
you want to coordinate this, that would be great. We will be very busy doing
* On Monday afternoon we will try to put some effort into the social media
promotion of the release. We will discuss with you a plan so we are partially
organize on this.
Many of you usually do promo through different social media so we want to make
sure we know who you are, you have the contens you need to promote openSUSE
and we do not miss any relevant channel. It could be nice also to experiment
on social media in different languages.
It would be very valuable if those of you willing to do promotion on Wednesday
and following days help us here, specially in channels like FB or twitter,
where many of us can contribute.
Any idea that we can include in the planning, prepare on Tuesday (or even
before if do not involve this team) and execute it during the Release day and
the following days will be more than welcome.
There are many many cool ideas we can try. We just want to make sure the ones
we all choose are doable, they are coordinated (at least partially) and, very
important, we can track them, so we can learn from them.
* On Wednesday we will do the actions needed to make everything public,
following the Action Plan that is on the wiki.
If nothing really unexpected happens, we will have a good Release on Wednesday
at 12:00 UTC.
I would like to thank the current and former members of openSUSE Team at SUSE
(former Boosters) for their work the last few months to get to this point, to
SUSE for its support but, above all, to you, that work with passion to make
this project possible.
Now....let's make some noise.
