Here is a little welcome message / Mail Template with some additional infos for new Members of the Marketing Team / new Contributors ...
Dear new Marketing Team Contributor,
Thank you for applying to the "Marketing" group in Fedora Account System and to participate.
There is no special Membership Process needed, but we would like to give you some short infos so that your way into Fedora Marketing gets easier.
If you are new to the Fedora Project please read thoroughly
As Marketeer you help to find the right words and materials so that others know what to expect from the Fedoraproject. You are a person, friendly and communicative. Fedora is big and scary, but you are going to help make sure that *one person* finds their way through all the confusion into the place where they can contribute. You are the mouthpiece to that. You help connect different people in different parts of the Project, because you are always dealing with people whose interests are different. In order to maintain a high level of quality in the Marketing group, we ask you to start with some basics starting with:
Where you can find all kind of ready prepared Marketing Material, Talking Points, Projects, pressmaterial, etc.
