Hi Marc!

Thanks for the great start concerning the release party wiki page! Just
some comments ...

Hi Marc,

As discussed at the most recent Confcall, I have put together a party
organiser page for the forthcoming LibreOffice release. Could you please
take a look at the page and add any other points that would be
considered necessary to hold a successful release party? [...]

Wow, I see many ideas and thoughts that go into great detail ...
however, I'm a bit unsure whether all people will be able (to want to)
fulfill the "must haves". To me, it seems that the "entry barrier"
should be as low as possible - for the "release party heroes", it might
help to "recommend" some activities.

Everything else will follow automatically, I think. At least if we are
able to come up with regular releases and parties. *g* So how about
making the list of "Must Haves" (maybe better: Organization) a bit more
compact and move the remaining stuff into a separate section like
"Further Ideas", or "Make it Unique", ...

Concerning the entry barrier, I'd also like to propose a change for the
Locations ideas/proposals: to move the "local bars/taverns" to the top,
since it might be the most easy thing to organize (because there is no
real organization required).

Only one item seems missing - the release date, or some basic links to
new features (maybe an inspiration how/what to celebrate). How about a
placeholder for that, until there is more information? And, this time,
we might also celebrate the 10th community anniversary ...

At all - the page is very complete - thank you! To me, the refinement is
just a different order to engage as many people as possible to organize
a release party.

Now we just need some good graphics to start the celebration right on
that page ;-)

And by the way, I had to smile when reading "food and LibO cake
(branding colour palette preferred)" - I instantly thought about the
vivid "accent" colors:

thanks a lot, good job! Just twittered about it ;)

Yep, indeed!
