Hi Joe,

Thanks for checking, also because I’m not a native speaker :)

I used the announcement text from previous CloudMonkey releases:

Will fix it.

This has been historically confusing, I always called it “cloudmonkey” but then few people
called it “CloudMonkey” as well. So, we had this understanding that the following be used:

“cloudmonkey” - When we talk about the (installed) command line tool or the python module/implementation
“CloudMonkey” - When we talk about the CloudStack CloudMonkey project

In this paragraph, I meant to refer the command line tool users can use. Advise if we should
just call it “CloudMonkey” from now onwards if this would be less confusing?

Not sure, advise how to address it since I copied text from the previous announcement:

I’ll wait for Sally’s announcement draft/format and have noted the corrections.
