One page release notes sprint?

Hi - you're getting this email because you're either (1) on the 
Marketing list, (2) listed on 
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Allegheny_Activism:_Team_Assignments as 
working on one-page release notes, or (3) a professor for the class.

The release is coming up soon, and we'd like to get the one page release 
notes done in first-draft form ASAP. We'd like to schedule one or more 
sprints in order to do this; sprints are when we get together online and 
plunge into Making Something together. In this case, I think etherpad 
(via http://piratepad.net/) makes sense as a collaboration medium.

Fill in your schedule availability on http://whenisgood.net/adan9w (it 
literally takes 45 seconds; I timed myself) and see the results at 
http://whenisgood.net/adan9w/results/ghwnx9. I'm watching results and 
will shout out sprint times *I'll* be online for to the list (my minimum 
criteria: myself + one other non-Allegheny Fedora community member + one 
Allegheny student in attendance) - others are free to propose their own 
(in other words, you can totally sprint without me. ;)

The way I see this working is that the Allegheny students will largely 
be writing the one page release notes deliverable, and the non-Allegheny 
Fedora folks will be answering questions and throwing notes on *how* to 
make one page release notes into 
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/One_page_release_notes_SOP for later 
cleanup by the Alleghenians - but there'll probably be plenty of 
crossover between the two.

PS: Future emails about this will go only to the Marketing list, so if 
you're not on the list already, please join; the page to do so is at 
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/marketing, and you can 
ask your professors in class tomorrow if you need help doing that.
