I'm extremely against this idea. Not only is this bad marketing, it
lowers the value of the brand and makes us look cheap and defeats the
whole point of a flyer, to be local promotion. If I have to throw a
$100 at psprint to print a few thousand flyers so be it. I just need
some CMYK 4x6 designs that say "Fedora 19 release party here!" on the
front, when, where, who, what, why. On the back I'd like to have some
features, why you should come to the party, etc. etc and it should
look cool. Not necessarily in that order. I'd like to throw them at
college kids and actually celebrate something.
I think the use case you are thinking of is just different. For flyers
about many Fedora related things, like general project information,
how to join various groups, details about how various teams work, etc.
that are not release specific making the flyers release specific is
often a big mistake leading to flyers that would still be useful a
release or two later becoming cruft on the wiki as they don't get
My preference is that flyers not be release specific unless there is a
good reason for them to be release specific. Your example is a good
reason for release specific information on the flyer.
