Looks great, I'll hop on the release video as usual. Will see if I can get manuscript and voiceover done so we can release subtitles early for 28th and get it to translators in good time as well.

Hi everyone,

The next GNOME release is scheduled for 14th March - exactly one month from today. This means that it's time to think about release marketing!

Things that we usually do for releases include:
Release notes
Screenshots for the release notes and screenshot pack
News story for gnome.org
Email Friends of GNOME donors
Social media plan
Release video
Support release parties
We will need help with many of the other tasks if we are to complete them on time. (I'm happy to focus on the text for the release notes and probably the news story.) Please let me or another team member know if you are interested in helping out.

Also, if you have any ideas for other things we could do, it would be great to hear them.

Some tentative deadlines for this:
28 February - release notes finished and released to the translation teams
7 March - send press packs out under embargo
14 March - publish news story and release notes, email Friends of GNOME donors This is a slightly more aggressive schedule than we've done in recent years, but it is really what we should be doing in order to give translators enough time and to allow press outreach to happen.

How does that sound?
