Hi Native Lang Website teams,

I'm speaking to the website teams more than to the l10n leads here :)
Bellow you'll find the wishes of the marketing project and the work that they would like to see achieved before the release next week. You can go your way or follow what is requested bellow (or mix the two ;) it's up to you.

The PR is discussed on the private PR list, but I can send it to you as soon as it's ready, just request it and I'll send it privately to be discussed/adapted with your teams.

If you would like to be added to the private PR list just drop me a mail too. This is where prepare the announcement for the next version, under the direction of Italo, just as we had in the OOo project. The process is, like in every part of our project, still a work in progress, so sorry for the short notice for all this wokr, I'm sure we will be much better next time :)

Don't hesitate if you have any question or need any help from me.

Kind regards

Subject: [libreoffice-marketing] marketing todos for 3.3 release
Date: Thu, 20 Jan 2011 21:02:15 +0100
From: Florian Effenberger <>
Organization: The Document Foundation


as we are quickly reaching our 3.3 release, during today's marketing
conference call, we collected items that should be done for the release
day. The date itself is not clearly fixed yet, but I expect it to be
within the next few days, so we should take a chance to work on it over
the weekend. :-)

Here's the list, any additions welcome:

* the local websites as well as itself should be
prepared with the news

* we need to translate the features page into the various languages

        * ideally, this comes also with localized screenshots that are used to
outline the new features

* the PR will soon be circulated and should then be translated into the
various languages and prepared for distribution

        * you can add local quotes if you want

        * we should point to local or global events where LibO community
members can be met, like FOSDEM and CeBIT:

* we should throw local release parties:

* we might decide on a slogan to use for certain marketing activies: (#35 seems to be a
good choice :-)

* we need to get in touch with journalists

        * for the spokespeople, I'm sure there are lots of local contacts who
built connections with journalists over the last years, and you are of
course free to talk about LibreOffice, the product and the community

        * for media requests specifically concerning the Foundation, please
route them to the TDF spokespeople, currently Charles, Italo, Olivier
and myself

* we should get "global" quotes, Charles and I am working on this

Sorry for this rather short compilation, and especially sorry for
staying so absent in the marketing list the last weeks. The
infrastructure and the foundation things kept me rather busy, but I am
now slowly coming back also to marketing and will contribute as I did
during my OOo times. :-)

We will also gradually improve structure, like local marketing contacts
and the like, so the workflow is even more optimized for 3.3.1 and 3.4. :-)

Thanks for all your help!
