Sensible.  I know that F7 is still a short time away, but perhaps we can start 
now to prepare a truly powerful message.  My current thinking is that we 
should solicit questions from our end-users pertaining to both the Fedora 
Project's current status and the F7 release, perhaps from fedora-list, and 
compile a list of high-quality answers.  This idea is inspired by Max's 
Slashdot interview.  I think we should then publish that document about a 
week before the final release - almost as a bit of a teaser.  It could also 
be included in our release summary or other release documentation on the 
wiki.  I'm sure there will be a large number of questions that arise from the 
changes since FC6, especially with the Core+Extras merger and new spins.  
Does anyone here think they could gather such questions?
