Introduce yourself to the marketing group
This page is part of the instructions on joining the Fedora marketing project. Please see that page for an overview of where this fits into the process.
A template to help you write your introduction email is below. Feel free to write your own email if this template doesn't meet your needs - basically, we are looking to learn:

Here are a few introduction emails that have been sent to the Marketing mailing list in the past, to give you an idea of how other people have done this.
Usage instructions: Send this email to the marketing list with Subject: "Self-Introduction: Your Name" (replace "Your Name" with your name, of course). Note that you will have to join the list before you can post to the list.
