thanks so much for the answers! It's very understandable, and I'll deal with the
I finally put a draft together:
I still got some responses from a few Flock speakers that are not incorporated in the
article. I'll look at that tomorrow. Need a break now :)
Have a great day!

Subject: Re: Daily update post about Flock
Sounds great about the pre-Flock article – I'd be happy to take a look
at it, but just to be sure, I'd like Paul Frields or Ryan Lerch to
greenlight it before publishing since they'll know more about the full
details of Flock than me. We also have our weekly Magazine meeting
tomorrow at 21:00 UTC, so we can make sure to review it then, if not sooner.
For the Fedora Planet, you would have to have an external blog to use
it. It's just an aggregator of contributor blogs as compared to its own
platform. It would probably be a good place to browse with regards to
searching for articles or posts about Flock during the event. For the
Community Blog and Magazine, all posts are syndicated there as well.
If you want to add your own blog to the Fedora Planet, it will require a
little bit of knowledge about using SSH (Secure Shell) to log into your
account. This would require using a terminal to
complete. If it isn't something you are familiar with doing, usually
another contributor would be happy to add your preferred category / tag
for Fedora-related posts to their own profile so it will show up there.
If needed, I could add yours to my file if you have a personal blog that
you'd like to syndicate certain posts to the Planet.
For the publishing rights, I meant for the Community Blog. As far as the
differences go between the Community Blog and the Magazine, the CommBlog
doesn't have as rigorous of a vetting / review process. Content isn't as
heavily curated so as to help promote easier access to contributors for
sharing their own updates / news.
Hope this clarifies some! :)
