Doing a release
This page is a temporary placeholder about stuff we would like to happen when doing a release.
This is still a work in progress...
The announcement message
We would like to have more professional announcements in the future and the effort is really minimal. The aim is to make it more conform to press releases. An announcement should have the following parts:
- A summary (to submit to news-sites)
- An introduction text explaining:
what it is you are announcing (so people can decide if it interests them)
why it exists (so people understand how it can be useful to them)
who it is for (so people know if they are the target audience)
- Technical details
- Links to more information and contact info
- Generic footer
