This is what I'm likely to send out as a call for "this is our final 
set, descriptions being edited please help!" to the usual marketing 
deliverables announcement list recipients. (marketing, devel, 
advisory-board) when I wake up in the morning. Patches before then 
welcome. ;)

There's a bit of cleanup left to do on talking points (as described in 
the bottom of this email) - help is uberwelcome, but it's on my plate to 
make sure this gets done, and I'll be pinging for help on this list and 
on IRC as needed. Y'all should worry about getting the slogan up and 
SOP'd in parallel, since we only have a week for that. (It's looking 
awesome, though.)


You may recall the Marketing team asking for help selecting the F13 
talking points last week - thanks to a great many people who 
participated, we were able to wrap up the discussion today (which you 
can see at 
and are happy to announce that the F13 talking points have been chosen.

Here they are! From https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_13_Talking_Points:

     * 1 For desktop users and everyone
           o 1.1 Automatic print driver installation

           o 4.2 Sugar on a Stick Spin
           o 4.3 Design Studio Spin
           o 4.4 Security Spin

Now: to finish fleshing them out, we need your help. We're aiming for a 
finished product like 
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_12_Talking_Points. See the links 
to feature pages, heavily hyperlinked descriptions, and catchy one-line 
summaries at the end? That's what we need for all the F13 talking points.

If you know cool things about a talking point that should be mentioned, 
good resources on it to link to, or otherwise have something to chip in, 
please add it to the wiki page 
(https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_13_Talking_Points); we'll be 
cleaning up the final display next week right before the Alpha goes out.

Tally ho!
