This sounds like a great idea! How would users be notified that there
is Miro with a rss Fedora chanell setup for them? Some short readme on
the desktop? A short video showing using Miro with Fedora channel?
Some html page readme on first firefox startup? Nothing of the above?
Something totally different?
