Of course we won't post before the announcement, that is why I shared
a draft timeline here. So said, I believe we better go out with some
material before others do, since by sharing the news in a positive way
we have a chance to influence others to report it in a nice way.
Consider also that our upcoming blog posts have been written by Rich
Bowen, who is an official press outlet for the ASF at feathercast.org
and is planning on running these videos there too.

We plan to do at least two videos, and the interviews to Extensions'
and Templates' creators are part of the 'old' plan to help the
project.
About mixing, we have already interviewed Jurgen and we plan to do
more, so who ever is open and willing is more than welcome.

Yea, I'll keep this stuff here, until we believe there is enough
momentum to move it to ooo-marketing.
