Simon's got pretty much everything else covered, so...

+1 to continuing FWN as an identifiable entity - fwiw, I agree that a 
beat is the right level to chunk content into (as opposed to "all of FWN 
in one post" or "individual items within a beat each make up their own 
numerous tiny posts"). Not sure how that works out with categories and 
tags, but I'm sure that it will rock, however you folks decide to make 
it happen zikula-wise. ;)

+100! I really think this FUDCon is going to leapfrog us ahead in terms 
of Cool Content Things by making it far easier to do so - with zikula as 
a platform to work from and marketing research to help us figure out 
where to aim, we're actually starting to gather and build an 
infrastructure and a set of tools for Doing Fedora Marketing. Sweet.

Abe Lincoln once said "Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will 
spend the first four sharpening the axe." We're coming out with Axe 
v.1.0 right now. ;)
