    • #info === FranciscoD / bkp Discuss and draft a short proposal of what one-page release announcements looks like for the press kit, with (1) timeline for when they should be created during the release, (2) type of content to include in the announcement, and (3) how it should be delivered ===

    • #info === Ticket #242: "Update release activity steps / process on the wiki" ===
      • #link
      • This ticket has some remaining actions left to complete – since we need to start getting talking points ready for F26 and to prepare for the State of Marketing presentation to the Council, proposing to action for follow-up and move on to our other two tickets?
    • #info === Ticket #245: "Create Fedora 26 talking points" ===
      • #link
      • F26 Alpha lands in two weeks. Do we want to separate the "new vision" for talking points into a new ticket and work on preparing this release's talking points in the traditional way? Whatever choice we follow, we need to have a deliverable ready before March 21st.
    • #info === Ticket #248: "Create an education-focused marketing campaign" ===
      • #link
      • This is meant to be open discussion about create loose "milestones" of objectives we would want to accomplish in order for this campaign to be successful. These milestones and goals of the campaign would be presented to the Council in our presentation in two weeks. Note that it's better to keep it general for now, and we can expand on details after circulating feedback and getting Council input.
