Hi Mel and all --

I am happy to help with one of LinkedIn or Facebook, am on both and an 
admin of the LinkedIn Fedora group, so happy to help.  There are 1696 
members of the LinkedIn group[1]and 1463 in the Fedora - Linux group[2]

We could also perhaps start some appropriate discussion threads within 
the LinkedIn group if there is ready content, like reuse of some of the 
F12 feature focuses various folk have started doing.  Posting one of 
these every second day or so now through sometime after launch might be 
interesting for folks.


Larry Cafiero is an admin of the Fedora group and Paul is an officer.

Paul. Jon Stanley, myself, and Franesco Crippa are managers of the 
LinkedIn group.
