If you're looking to promote a new release of KDE, KOffice or possibly KYourApplication then this section is your new best friend. This page kicks things off with a quick overview of release promotion, followed by a list of HOWTOs for specific parts of the process.
To promote your release, you need to do at least some of these items:
For minor releases (e.g. 3.5.3) we only need to complete stages 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 and 8. Translations are a welcome addition, whilst an illustrated guide is overkill since changes will mostly be "invisible" bugfixes.
You should start work on items 1 and 2 at least two weeks before the release date (set by the Technical Working Group), and allow at least a week each to produce and translate the deliverables. Ideally, allow three weeks for minor releases and upwards of a month for major releases to ensure you can get the highest quality materials produced. Always allow time for offers of help to fall through, volunteers to disappear for a few days and other nasty surprises.
Announcements for major and minor releases of KDE and KOffice are co-ordinated on the kde-promo mailing list. Application teams are welcome to come there for help promoting their own releases.
On the actual release day, co-ordinate the Dot announcement and press release distribution with the Marketing Team and the Technical Working Group. Otherwise chaos can ensue!
