Is there any chance we can commit to a series of blog posts articulating the
"water is fine" message and also actual experience of working in the ASF
communities? We can then, potentially, try to syndicate those into mainstream
tech (and may be non-tech) publications with a little help from Sally.
Of course, as usual, we need volunteers for that.

We can extend that idea then into a series of presentations/keynotes
at ApacheCON

Finally, I like the idea of leveraging the experience of other organization that
have dealt with this. Back to my blog post point, any chance we can get somebody
from the other side to be a guest blogger?

Finally, how about Rich and his Feathercast crew doing a series of interviews?

Of course, once again, all of the above requires volunteers.
