Yep. And really, each point shows a different, yet crucial bit of the project.

On a side note, about the coming alpha2: we are going to release it on
next Tuesday and all that will go into it must be freezed by this
coming Friday evening.

What relies on some marcom work is, among other things, the main
message under which this alpha2 will be released: it's still an alpha,
unstable, still for contributors/testers but it has fixes from the
previous one, more packages included, better artwork. This message is
crucial as it will be used for the website, on the blogs, and so on.
It's not only about announcing the alpha2 release in itself than about
announcing the alpha2 milestone in Mageia 1 build process (that is,
there are other releases coming and there is room for contributors).

In this short timeframe, if we are quick enough, we can still insert a
few screens during the installing process, to promote the project, the
product and the contribution process (Alexn83 will produce the screen,
but what goes into it exactly and how we welcome users/contributors on
the start page is still to be done).

So what needs to be done?
 - try to attend this evening Council meeting for those who can (19:30
UTC on #mageia-meeting)
 - please push your ideas and whether you want to take on some
coordination work with the artwork team
 - try to attend marcom meeting this Thursday to square the message
for the release
