I'm working on blackmail and head-bashing from within Red Hat.

Also, working on a few infrastructure details before making YAGeneral
call for release notes and beat writers.

Sub-project leaders need to be accountable and responsible for getting
the content into the designated locations (see below).  They can
delegate the responsibility to someone in their project to be the beat

The FDP is taking this content, editing it, converting it into single-
source XML, working with translation, packaging it into fedora-release,
and posting it on the Web.

I'm just about to make an announcement about this.  That we need more
than just some notes dropped into bugzilla, but actual ownership from
the projects.

We're going to open up content submissions to include the Wiki, with a
more open editing rule (have to create an account but don't require
EditGroup access.)  Hopefully we'll see more raw chunks of content made
available.  We'd see input from testers who might not otherwise mess
with the Wiki.

Now that's a good idea.
