Whiteboard

Moving several of our blueprint items from Utopic cycle to Vivid cycle.

Add several things I learned from a recent talk on open source project marketing, including: add a press contact page for your site, know your marketing audience and do user polls to identify interest & satisfaction

SURVEYS
Survey 1: http://pad.ubuntu.com/xubuntu-user-identifies-as
Survey 2: http://pad.ubuntu.com/xubuntu-user-apps

FLYERS
The flyer alignment problems are solved by using an "FB" mode on the printer, if one is offered by the printer. This is easiest done from the command line with a single lp-command. If an FB-mode isn't available, one has to use a special PDF that has its edges cut to fit the printable area. Note: This is not thoroughly investigated yet.
