Super!  As for the time frame for ReleaseAnnouncements -- according to
the page itself, the talking points for F7 were ready about 8 days
before the release date, so that should give you some idea.  Does that
sound doable to you?

And I apologize in advance for being a netiquette nazi, but if you could
post in plain ASCII text, it would help the many subscribers we have who
aren't using GUI mail readers.  If you're using the Gmail interface to
read and send mail, you'll find there's a "Plain text" button above the
editor which should allow you to send messages in the proper format.
You can toggle this back and forth for other uses, of course.
