OK great; thanks, Denis!
I've accepted almost all suggestions, except for the ones that align with ASF editorial house
style (= "look" vs. meaning).
Kind thanks,Sally

I’ve finished on my side. Please see my suggestions in the google doc.
If anyone else is willing to review the announcement please do it by 18.00 PM EST (15.00 PST).

Hi everyone --just confirming that we'll need to lock in the copy in ~6 hours in order to
announce tomorrow morning.
Denis, if you can please forward the copy when ready so the PMC has a chance to review in
time, that would be great.

Confirm that I could access and edit the doc. 
Sure, I’ll finish the editing by that time. Most likely this will be the first thing to
do on Tuesday.

Oh wow --Denis, thank you!
I must say, the documentation on Ignite is exhaustive and comprehensive, so pulling things
together was an "embarrassment of riches" experience <g>. Gold Star to the PMC --I'll
definitely use this as an example for other projects to emulate.

OK...I just sent you editing credentials, and look forward to locking in the copy hopefully
by 6PM ET on Tuesday so we can go live Wednesday morning.
Does that work for you?
Kind thanks again,Sally

You understood everything perfectly well producing such a clear and great article! Not sure

Please give editing permissions to my google account (magda7817@gmail.com). I’ll fill in

Hello, everyone --as promised, below is the draft so far. Here's hoping I understood everything
correctly <g>
Kindly note that we'll need to fill in the "@@" under the hood section on v1.8 (this part
can be technical and developer-focused, whilst the rest of the document should be tech-lite
= understandable for journalists who are geeky but not technologists). I'll be happy to provide
editing credentials on the googledoc to those requesting it.
Do keep in mind that this is not a press release, so the format is different from what we're
used to (I launched the "Have you met...?" series with Mahout[1] back in 2010 to great media
interest: coverage within 24 hours). We can also work together on establishing a template
for you to use for future project announcements.
As always, comments/corrections/additions welcome!
Thanks so much,Sally

The ASF asks: Have you met Apache Ignite?
Since 1999, The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) has been recognized as a leading source for
an array of Open Source software and tools that meet the demand for interoperable, adaptable,
and sustainable solutions. The all-volunteer ASF develops, stewards, and incubates dozens
of enterprise-grade Open Source projects that power mission-critical applications in financial
services, aerospace, publishing, government, healthcare, research, infrastructure, and more.
From Abdera to ZooKeeper, the demand for ASF's reliable, community-driven software continues
to grow dramatically across many categories, including Cloud, IoT, Artificial Intelligence
and Machine Learning, Mobile, and Big Data, where the Apache Hadoop ecosystem dominates the
marketplace.
Did you know that numerous Fortune 500 enterprises depend on Apache Ignite’s in-memory "Fast
Data" platform to process large-scale data sets in real-time, at orders of magnitude faster
than traditional technologies?
We are pleased to showcase Apache Ignite, the high-performance In-Memory Data Fabric that
provides in-memory data caching, partitioning, processing, and querying components.
Quick peek: Apache Ignite is an integrated and distributed In-Memory Data Fabric for computing
and transacting on large-scale data sets in real-time, orders of magnitude faster than possible
with traditional disk-based or flash technologies. It is designed to easily power both existing
and new applications in a distributed, massively parallel architecture on affordable, industry-standard
hardware.
Background: Originally created at GridGain as its flagship in-memory computing (IMC) platform,
Ignite entered the Apache Incubator in September 2014 and graduated as an Apache Top-Level
Project in August 2015.
Why Ignite: Apache Ignite addresses today's Fast Data needs by providing a comprehensive in-memory
data fabric, which includes a data grid with SQL and transactional capabilities, in-memory
streaming, an in-memory file system, and more.
Heavily benchmarked, Ignite has been built from the ground up to linearly scale to hundreds
of nodes with strong semantics for data locality and affinity data routing to reduce redundant
data noise. Ignite data grid is lightning fast and is one of the fastest implementations of
transactional or atomic data in distributed clusters today.
Unlike other Big Data processing solutions, Apache Ignite treats RAM as a primary storage
facility (as opposed to being used exclusively for processing). As such, Ignite's memory-first
approach is more efficient and faster: with improved system indexes, reduced data fetch time,
and no delays in a stream content processing, among other benefits.
Additionally --and unique to Apache Ignite-- its SQL Grid eliminates the need for painful
and challenging migration from relational database to in-memory data grid (IMDG), alleviating
the need for developers to have to rewrite SQL based code to IMDG’s native APIs. This means
that developers can keep using existing applications and tools written for relational databases
and based on SQL language with very little to no code modification. Ignite SQL Grid is horizontally
scalable, fault tolerant, and SQL ANSI-99 compliant.
Using Apache Ignite, developers benefit from:

   
   - Data Grid --replicate or partition data in memory within the cluster;
   - In-Memory SQL Grid --add in-memory distributed database capabilities;
   - Advanced Clustering --including logical cluster groups and auto-discover;
   - ODBC Driver --select and modify data stored in a distributed cache;
   - Compute Grid --distribute computations across cluster nodes;
   - Service Grid --cluster-enable any service or data structure;
   - Streaming & CEP --easily stream large volumes of data into Ignite; and
   - Data Structures --distribute own data structure across the cluster.


To solve real-time business issues and meet application requirements for the highest performance
and scale, Apache Ignite leverages and integrates a host of Apache projects including Spark,
Hadoop, YARN, and Mesos.
Latest release: Apache Ignite v1.8 on 9 December 2016 under the Apache License v.2.0. More
details can be found below and in the release notes.
@@What's under the hood: New in v1.8 is … (list 3-5 features/benefits … we can get technical
with 0s and 1s here).

Hi folks --just a quick heads-up that I haven't forgotten about you!
I issued three press releases + the January "Success at Apache" this week, so there's been
a little extra press activity than usual.
I'm aiming to get the draft to you today...otherwise over the weekend.
I apologize for the delay and thank you for your continued patience.

Thanks, Denis. I'm working on a draft and will send it over for review in the next couple
of days.

*Prachi*, please add Roman’s blog to Apache Ignite’s blogs list:https://ignite.apache.org/blogs.html
*Sally*, considering that all the information is already at place is it a good time to wrap
it up in an Apache official announcement?

Roman, amazing thanks!
You can use any blogging engine you like. After the blog post is ready notify the community
and Prachi will send your material to dzone.com and when it’s accepted there we will public
it on Ignite’s blogging page (https://ignite.apache.org/blogs.html). 
As for the format, I would suggest making a quick walk-through guidance including code snippets
and showing how to connect to the cluster from Python or Ruby (whatever you like most) and
work with it. You can do something like I did for PHPhttps://dzone.com/articles/apache-ignite-enables-full-fledged-sql-support-for

Boop! Sorry about that...indeed, I wrote Roman's name in my notes next to "1.8 release manager?"
and clearly combined the two.
Apologies for alarming you.
But that is a good hint, Denis <g>

Roman have never been a release manager yet. However, this is just a matter of time and his
interest/intention ;)
