Hello Everyone!

My name is Danny Piccirillo reporting from the Marketing Team and
we're hoping to have a super-successful Hardy Release Campaign with
your help. Please pass this information on to your teams.

by Canonical for the release and adapt it to make their own local
press releases.

We also would like to see all LoCo's engaging in organized activism

It includes tips, how to convert friends, flyering and postering,
lobbying government, educational institutions, organizations & clubs,

guide especially if you have experience with any of the mentioned

Our next meeting will be Wednesday, March 12th @ 00:00 UTC so if you
have any ideas please add it to the agenda and show up for the

Spread the word far and wide,
