I'm in the "low bar" camp, depending on the definition
here. For example, we currently "promote" spins on the Web site, and I
don't think that should change. The alpha/beta/final announcements can
and should include mentions of spins and other work in Fedora even if
it's not it's one of the Three Products.
But we might say it's up to folks doing "other" work to come up with
screenshots/copy, etc. if we're going to put them on the site/include
release announcements, etc.
In other words - they'll need to meet the marketing team part-way and
get involved if they want help promoting their work, but we shouldn't
refusing to promote anything done in Fedora if the team doing the work
is willing to take those steps.
I'm with Joe on this. As long as we have people willing to work on a
specific area of marketing, we don't need to limit our focus. When the
products were discussed, an important point was that each team would
have liaisons in the product workgroups: ambassadors, designers,
marketers, testers etc.. In due time, I expect the worgroups to start
discussing marketing with us, quite like Matt brought this up.
We've already been trying to divide our work. For instance: some of the
marketing team focus on the magazine; I try and focus on tasks related
to ambassadors and keep up with the desktop SIG (which sort of makes me
a liaison with these two teams). If we can get just enough people
involved to divide our focus on the different products/spins/whoever
needs marketing we'll be just fine. The ideal situation would be to have
a few marketing team members working with each product/spin/ IMO.
I think the only issue here is that we're understaffed, so a starting
point would be to start a recruitment campaign of sorts to increase our
numbers? Ideas? Probably a different thread?
