Thanks; busy week for me, just back on task here.
I rolled all the suggestions so far into here:
Sorry! I broke my own rule and cross-posted; I meant to push discussion
here only. :)
Big Message #1: REMIX. Fedora is now remixable. Add your own
remove packages you don't like, build your own distro and share it with
the world. Let a thousand distros bloom.
Big Message #2: APPLIANCES. The new tools for building Fedora make it
*dead simple* for any reasonably experienced Linux admin to create their
own custom distribution. Ideal for ISVs who want to build an appliance
around their own product. Build an RPM, identify the minimal number of
packages needed to make an appliance around that RPM, and then build a
distro and a live image. Easy as pie.
These are essentially the same message -- but they hit two different
audiences. The first message is "consumer-y", the second is
OK, nice long messages. Versus short points. Maybe a mix?
BIG PARA ONE
BIG PARA TWO
LIST OF FIVE ADDITIONAL ITEMS
Remember -- the goal here is not to _write_ the announcement, but to
define what each group writes in their own language. We can specify
some quantity of content per item, if we think it matters.
Once we have talking points together, I'll invite anyone who is
interested to take it off list and write up the en-US version with
me. :) Some things are funnier when developed off-list ...
