 Subject: Fw: Event branding use request
Hey Rich --FYI, there's a new 'con in town, namely PhoenixCon.
Details follow.
I'll be doing my supporting promotions from the M&P side. Perhaps you can add it to the
events schedule as well?
Also, in future, what is the best email address/list/* for me to send such notices to?
Many thanks,Sally

Mark. I've started to publicize it, starting with a tweet[1], but will follow up on the related
dev/user lists too. Would it be possible for the ASF to announce too (and a retweet would
be appreciated too)? Is there an "official" calendar this will appear on (cc-ing Sally, master
of all things marketing :-) ).

Looks good to me.

Consider this approved unless you hear otherwise from Shane (V.P. Brand)
