We can do this in rBLOG Lubuntu.me Blog but I need to know what we should write about.
Some ideas, and some questions:
- Will the manual be complete enough that we should list it right in the release announcement? We have T98: Proofread the Lubuntu Manual of course, but that can always be done right up to the release.
- I scheduled a tweet for Wednesday for people to give us cool screenshots of their 18.10 systems, and we'll pick the best ones to throw in the release announcement (with credit, of course). I think that will really hype things up because people can see what you can do with Lubuntu.
- Of course, we have to mention our contributors. I have @tsimonq2 @wxl @SBanya @TheWendyPower @hmollercl @kc2bez @lynorian @redwolf @Wolfenprey as a list. Am I missing anyone?
- Could y'all maybe give a short description of what you think was important this cycle that you did, why people should care, etc.? I can then work the wording into the release announcement.
- Contributor promo, maybe? @wxl, how is our contributor documentation looking? Is that something we can have all nice and polished up, maybe on Lubuntu's Contributor Guide before the release? This release literally wouldn't have happened in the spectacular way it did if it wasn't for all the new contributors.
- Screenshots, screenshots, screenshots. I don't know if we should leave this to the manual or ask @TheWendyPower to take some super clean looking screenshots, but assuming we get some good results from the tweet, we can have a separate section of the release announcement highlighting what the release looks like. The press will really thank us for this.
Anything else, folks? Now's the time to speak up if you have anything to say on the matter.
