Promo/Release Announcement Guidelines
Release Announcement Guidelines
This is supposed to give some information on how a release announcement should be formulated, how screenshots should look and what information needs to be in there.
The release team maintain a release checklist here.
See the openSUSE Product Highlights writing guide, it was essentially build on how we do stuff.
All screen shots must be taken as follows:
- 1280*720 or 1366*768 resolution (small and wide screen to fit articles! A high resolution screen shot looses all details when scaled down as part of a publication)
- with default theme, color scheme, window decoration, widgets etcetera. No fancy stuff ;-)
- Try to have application windows big but not maximized
- Don't overload the screen with windows: more than 2 really is too much, don't let it get too cluttered!
