(Marketing folks - this was asked on the Docs list in response to this 
email, so I thought it might be good to give a fuller explanation.)

Thanks for the call-out - I should have been more clear when I sent out 
that email.

This email was basically announcing the almost-final (it will be frozen 
on Monday) Marketing schedule of what we'll be working on for the F12 
release. It's here:

I sent it to several other lists (including Docs) because one of the 
things we want to make sure is that our schedule is OK for all the other 
teams we'll have to work with on a deliverable, or send a deliverable 
to. For instance, if Marketing is supposed to make 1-page release notes 
for Docs, a milestone for that should be on the Marketing F12 schedule, 
and Docs has to be happy with the date of that Marketing milestone, so 
we can get stuff to you on time.

Not all the other teams were listed (for instance, as you pointed out, 
Localization wasn't mentioned) because we only have "deliverable due 
dates" for a few teams. We'll still be working with, listening to, and 
making stuff for all the other teams (and really, anyone working on 
Fedora who'd like Marketing help) - this list was just to make sure big 
schedule milestones all matched up. If you think we *should* have 
specific milestones for a team that isn't listed, please let us know!

Hope that explains a bit - and please, let me know if I should be going 
about this differently, or explaining things better... I'm trying to go 
around to coordinate individually with the owners of the various team 
schedules, so things should be taken care of, but I also wanted to let 
others on the teams that we'll be working with know why they might at 
some point get stuff from Marketing, or see Marketing people show up at 
particular meetings, and that kind of thing. ;)
