Thanks; busy week for me, just back on task here.

I rolled all the suggestions so far into here:


Sorry!  I broke my own rule and cross-posted; I meant to push discussion
here only. :)

OK, nice long messages.  Versus short points.  Maybe a mix?




Remember -- the goal here is not to _write_ the announcement, but to
define what each group writes in their own language.  We can specify
some quantity of content per item, if we think it matters.

Once we have talking points together, I'll invite anyone who is
interested to take it off list and write up the en-US version with
me. :)  Some things are funnier when developed off-list ...
