Hey all,
we’re not likely ready to ship on Tue/6th, let’s bump the Press Release date to the Tues/13th.

I’ll keep you posted with the progress and a PR draft over the next days.

Thanks, Joseph and Doug.

I toggle between Manhattan and Boston, and am happy to meet you both when our schedules ease
up a bit :-)

I'll share the draft press release once I have content from the PMC. Right now, my copy that
I've shared with them isn't where they're editing at present, so I, too, am on standby.

With respect to a call on Friday, 11AM-12Noon is great. Do let me know if you'd prefer to
set it up.
Warmest regards,

PMSubject: Re: Upcoming CouchDB 2.0 PRThanks so much, Doug.I'm actually waiting for the preliminary
draft from the PMC, so I don't have anything to share just yet.Having said that, we are soliciting
quotes from the community, and definitely welcome one from IBM! Please refer to
as a resource on how our testimonials should look like.Should you wish to issue a standalone
"Hurrah, Apache CouchDB!" press release/blog/tweet/*, that would be fantastic as well. Let's
discuss to coordinate tactics and further details. I'm in Boston over the next week and can
call/Skype this Friday between 11AM-12.30PM and 2.30-4PM.Warmly,Sally = = = = =  vox +1 617

CouchDB 2.0 PRHi Sally, I'm with the IBM Cloudant marketing team (other members copied here).
I wanted to reach out in regards to the forthcoming Apache CouchDB 2.0 press release after
Labor Day. I was hoping to find out more about what the ASF is planning PR-wise. We'd be happy
to make some of the prominent IBM committers available for comment to the press, where relevant.
If you've already reached out to some of them about this, apologies in advance - I just wanted
to see if we could get a better of idea of what is currently in plan so that we can align
our own efforts and editorial calendar accordingly. Additionally, we are planning to wrap
the CouchDB 2.0 news into an announcement blog post, and include in proactive media outreach,
around upcoming Cloudant product / service updates - likely in late September or October.
Could we set up some time to discuss this with Joe Gallo (also copied here) from IBM external
comms? Look forward to hearing back.  Best,Doug Doug FloraPortfolio Marketing - Cloud Data
