The page looks great. I think you can also find some helpful
information on the [[Category:Talking Points]] page that will help
fill in "how to choose points." In fact, I'd be in favor of removing
a bunch of that material from the Category page, and just linking back
to the [[Talking points SOP]], to avoid duplication of content (and
confusion about where the governing stuff is).

I have some changes I'd like to propose to the talking points that are
on the page now, should I just edit the wiki?
* I'd include the state of free video drivers (esp. start of 3D
support in nouveau) here. That's a huge story that we need to drive
home, because so many people say that 3D support is what keeps them
on a proprietary NVidia driver.
* The new user account dialog is a big step forward in usability and
deserves some love. I'd combine this with color management and
NetworkManager upgrades as "general desktop improvements."
* What about Zarafa being available, which is the first complete
groupware (mail/calendar/etc.) solution available in Fedora?
* NFS features need to be combined.
* I'd advocate for removing the SSSD listing because of the difficulty
of explaining the impact to a lay press reader, and because this
change will not affect many people.
* NFS and the btrfs rollback feature need to be explained in simple
terms, or else dropped off the list.
* IntelliJ IDEA and NetBeans could be combined as general "You can
find this package in Fedora 13" features.
* The Python 3 feature should be expanded to include the better Python
debugging features in Fedora 13, which will affect many devs using
both Python 2.6.x and Python 3.
Finally, I think we discussed reserving a section in the talking
points for new spins. This time around we're premiering the Fedora
Moblin(tm) Desktop Edition and Sugar on a Stick.
