Marketing Priorities

    • OPNFV/CNTT Meld is the big story, so that is where the focus will be
  • Heather called for additional stories
    • Al points out individual projects would want their own highlights
    • Heather confirms business as usual for release highlights, and asks if there are specific highlights from projects, can we do blog posts or whitepapers as well.  If so, direct them to Heather or Bob Monkman
      • Al Morton  requests 10 minutes to discuss that in  TSC call
    • Mark Beierl suggests GitLab would make a good topic
    • #AGREE, no one may use ideate as word in meetings.  This means you, Heather.
    • Heater points out the marketing whiteboard to help gather terms for creating process and search for trademarks
