create FooBar page and hand off to appropriate people mchua 2009-07-08 done, see FooBar
Choose a Foobar platform ianweller 2009-08-01 Final platform should be chosen by 8/1; in the meantime, this means serving as the liason between zikula/logistics and marketing/foobar alongside JonRob. Specific deliverables before 7/14 marketing meeting: (1) Attend 7/8 Zikula meeting as Marketing/FooBar delegate, and send meeting notes from that perspective to both the logistics and marketing lists; (2) on FooBar, list the criteria you're using for platform selection, and (3) on FooBar, draft a list of features that platform should have (as part of the selection criteria) on FooBar. Ping Marketing people on-list and in-channel to help fill in brainstorms for all 3.
Docs team release notes request writeup Sparks 2009-07-14 Docs team wants Marketing to write a 1-pg user-focused version of release notes; Sparks to shoot an email to mktglist on what the idea is and what Docs is looking for from Marketing. It sounds like you'd like Marketing to own the 1-pg notes and coordinate with Docs, but we are not sure exactly what this 1-pager is that we would own. At the 7/14 meeting, we'll look for volunteers and set a future milestone for this, probably towards the end of the release cycle.
