Hi All,

I wanted to check in with everyone regarding final preparations for release.
These items may have been discussed on IRC, but I figured it would be good
to check anyway. Please note that I'm writing this with no intention of
providing an exhaustive list of tasks, but as a prompt to start discussions
and confirm remaining tasks.

What are people's plans for updating the website? Do we have a news
announcement planned? With the Beta, I think we just took some of the
wording from the release announcement.  Is there a way to check what mirrors
are working?

Are there any features that are not included in the RC release announcement
that you feel should be mentioned? In the final announcement? As a note,
Steve Langasek's current draft of the Ubuntu release announcement points to
this page ( https://wiki.ubuntu.com/9.04/Xubuntu ) for Xubuntu's release

With regard to the release notes, it appears as though some elements that
are specific to Kubuntu are being included in the Ubuntu release notes. Is
there any chance of including  known Xubuntu issues on the same page (
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/904 )?  If not, we could copy
the relevant items onto a wiki page, and add our Xubuntu-specific items from

Thanks, all,
