I'm holding off until Monday for the ooo-announce post.  It is more
likely to be read if sent out on a Monday than a Friday.


Are there any other places we should post this information to?
Legacy dev/user/discuss lists?  phpBB Forums?  Any NLC's?  If anyone
can help broadening the reach of this information, it would help avoid
surprises when March 15th comes.
