Hello Matthew,

Welcome onboard.... Mel already told me / us that there are some
students interested in this stuff. I'm happy to read at your blog that
you are already have some experience, because the work on technological
press-releases and press-kits are (or should be) almost the same.
You can first have a look at
http://www.braincache.de/wp/2010/04/05/fedora-presskit/ where I gave a
first short intro of how a press-kit in general look like and also how
the content of our upcoming fedora 13 press-kit could look like.

rules or better guidelines mentioned at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Writing_press_Releases_HowTo to write
those, but maybe you find some interesting parts here as well.

country's and cultures to cover. Therefore you can also read the Mail
from Paul
http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-April/012295.html about
licensing as some kind of background info.
What we need for a first start are pictures from Fedora Releasepartys or
Linuxevents with some kind of lucky people and collect the Links on a
wikipage (a possible place to start can be

And if you have any question then you can ask anytime.

mit freundlichen Grüßen / best regards
