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,Sally = = = = =  vox +1 617 921 8656gvox +1 646 598 4616skype sallykhudairi

Hi Sally - I'm in IBM Communications team, focusing on the analytics business (including our
Analytics Platform Services team). Once you have a draft of the announcement, I'd love to
see it and see how we can help support it (with a quote, a tweet, blog post, something).

I'm based in NY (so ET like you) and can talk between 11-12.

Thanks 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.

Hi 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.
