Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Initiate a Contest for Branding of 4.0
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2012 08:18:10 GMT

Linux Journal blog, sourceforge newsletters, prominent news channels like
Lxer http://lxer.com/ and others. This is what marketing should be focused
on at the moment. That way initiatives like this grasp major notoriety in
the open source world.
