Description

This is the thing which gets us awesome reviews and "blogs like this":http://www.linux-magazine.com/Online/Blogs/Off-the-Beat-Bruce-Byfield-s-Blog/openSUSE-shows-how-to-promote-a-release

We create an awesome presskit containing:
* Press announcement
* Community announcement on news.o.o (link to the preview and if possible a PDF version if it)
* Product highlights (PDF)
* Feature guide (in PDF. Terribly much work, yes, painful, yes worth it, yes)
* Screenshots (include 'bonus' screenshots, if you can)
* a link to the GM
* A document with quotes from the openSUSE team, the board and other people about their favorite features
* reviewers guide
* list of people who can be interviewed

huh? the idea was to send this to the press in advance. See the link provided.

#17 Updated by ddemaio almost 3 years ago

The GM was sent out to the press last Thursday with a combination of other information, but the press kit will go to the press when I send them the release.
