Here's a draft of what I'm planning to send out to fedora-announce,
devel-announce, and fedora-mktg lists..... much (most) of this is from
what Paul and Aamir wrote.

If anyone has quick feedback, please add to this mail thread; I'm
taking the drive to Phoenix to distribute 8 cases of girl scout
cookies, and will be sending this out approximately 5pm Pacific Time.




Talking points are key highlights of the new release. They should be
compelling, but they will not necessarily be comprehensive. There are
different types of talking points for different types of people:
general desktop users/everyone, developers, and sysadmins.  For the
Fedora 13 cycle, we will also have talking points to address some of
the Spins. They are meant to provide a short, effective answer to the
question, "What cool stuff is in the latest release of Fedora?"

Each cycle, the Marketing team compiles a short list of approximately
three talking points for each of these audiences for the upcoming
release. For Fedora 13, they're found here:

If you have a talking point that you feel meets the criteria found on
the talking points SOP page at, add it to the the
table on the F13 page with supporting information. Please make your
changes to the wiki page, so that the Marketing team can efficiently
capture and consider your input.

The Marketing team will make final adjustments to the list of talking
points at their meeting on February 23, which will be announced on the
marketing list and is open to everyone.  If you are interested in
attending the meeting, the agenda, location, and time details can be
found at  Following
the meeting, the finalized list of talking points will be announced,
and posted to
