perfect, i think we can use this wiki page to define each point and then unify 
the various results:

i've taken all these e-mails, these days i'm busy because i'm organizing the 
party, from monday on i will read and create some contents, to discuss with 
you (maybe in the final phase we can plan also a chat meeting, even if i'm a 
little unlucky with these : )

surely they are really important, but do not forget that a coherent marketing 
plan is really needed because any action assume a vision behind it (e.g. 
messages to be inserted in the installer: which target? which meanings we want 
to communicate?)
