Hey everyone,

I have been following the marketing thread since yesterday, and I apologize again for sending our reporters a subject line that was misinterpreted. I was excited to make sure the Beta release received a lot of good coverage, and I will definitely make sure the same thing doesn't happen again, especially with the upcoming GA.

Here's my proposal: it would be awesome if the Red Hat PR people will
add to the check-list of things to do at a release one more bullet:

"* Make sure the announcement is not mistaken AGAIN"

Is F17 release all over again:
we seem to never learn and repeat the mistake at each release, perhaps
that's why Jóhann was so annoyed.
