Thanks, Paul.

It's useful, but I do like keeping the date close to the actual
release.  We're going to try for the 29th, and hope the release
happens on time.  Hopefully we can get the word out through other
means.  I'll keep it in mind for 10.4. :)

I'd like to make a short announcement at the LUG meeting tonight,
which should cover some of the same audience.

Well, we'll do our best.  :)

Definitely leaning more towards the enthusiast crowd, likely with a
mix of people who are existing Ubuntu/Linux users and folks who are
just curious. Since it's Kwartzlab, I'm expecting a good chunk of
people will be hacker/maker folks who may or may not have tried Ubuntu
but are interested in cool things they can *do* with it in whatever
projects they're working on or thinking about.

Darcy.
