This is an excellent idea. Test day schedules are made fairly well in
advance, so it's possible for the Marketing team to look at that
schedule, pick out some groovy features, and then plan a marketing
push around each one.
This is something that the QA team is very keen to have going on --
good cross-team collaboration, but also strengthening the audience at
their test days. The Marketing team should try to build on that
audience not just with feature profiles, but also with social media
that reaches a lot of people, especially since the Test Days provide
everything needed to participate, including an ISO image.
I copied this idea / email link to the [[Marketing_brain_dump]] so we
can incorporate it in the F14 marketing plan. Which gets done as soon
as we finish one page release notes! wooooot
