Stick them on issues, and we'll get them figured it out. One thing I would
like to do is to reach out with VM preview images to various media people
and have them take a look at it so we have a lot of reviews on roughly the
One other new thing is to see if we can get on podcasts. It would be great
to see you or Carlos and Neil out there. We haven't traditionally done
that kind of outreach but I think it would be good to do that.
I would do it, but I'm already doing podcasts on behalf of System76 and
Pop!_OS and I don't want to muddle messaging or confuse people but I can
certainly help with messaging for these things and it will be fun.
