I'd structure this a little bit different, although we mean the same:
The "Who" is quite clear: the main announcer (ennael?)
Text proposed by marcomm.
- - Blog
- - Forum
- - Mageia lists
- - Distrowatch
- - slashdot
- - other sites
- through i18n:
- - translations of the blog and the download page (as has been done
for previous announcements)
- - spreading the announcement to local communities (lists, forums),
local news sites and online magazines
> Content: what's being released
> what's new
- with link to the release notes
> where to go to get it
- link to the download page
> welcome to new users
> encourage new makers / contributors
> about Mageia
To achieve worldwide attention (we should reach this until final) it
should all be spread within a very tight time span, on the same day.
People must be plastered with the Mageia announcement, wherever they
look at that day.
For the future we should implement a procedure where such
announcements will be sent to the translators 1 day in advance.
> Extra for testing day:
> damsweb's testing procedure
> inside marcomm wrapper
> Time to write: marcomm bit, ready by 05-04-11
> testing wrapper, soon as I see damsweb's doc
The same procedure in spreading as for the beta announcement,
following as a sequel - people have to regard both announcements as
related, the testing day as a follow-up to the release.
