OK, it was easier than I thought :) Below is an rss feed that miro
will understand. I made the mistake of following through on the miro
process to see what happened, but changed the details so that it's not
linked to the fedora project (other than via my ugly mug!)

There are some extra items we could add to this, such as categories
and tags, but you can do that as you post it to miro. Also, we could
add an image such as the fedora logo or something special the art-team
might like to do for this...

Best,

Jon
