Subject Re: Announcing releases: where our users are
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2013 11:06:44 GMT
Excellent. The suggested template for the announce message mentions the 
Trac project and so I hope that it is appropriate for all places we 
could want to announce it.

As for the twitter account, it might be nice if this was also something 
that could effectively be done by a release manager. I'm not so much 
thinking of sharing the account details (although it could be useful to 
share those between more PPMC members just in case). I would probably 
prefer to just be able to send an email or even get the message 
automatically triggered by the announcement appearing on announce@

The wikipedia idea sounds good too - certainly worth investigation. I 
would hope that copying the Trac entries and then updating as we 
officially gain specific features should not be too controversial. The 
guidelines for wikipedia discourage writing about anything you are 
directly involved in - even so, it would probably be better not to hide 
association of the project with such an addition.
