Works for me. I will be off work then, so I will have plenty of time to
get this down. Also is there anything I can do to prepare? Can I get a
jump on something by reading some wiki pages, or some other way? I just
ask since I'm the most inexperienced and don't want to take up
everyone's time during the fun. Thanks for all the help everyone!

We have been discussing a training session and orientation to get
contributors ready to help us with porting content from the wiki into
This would consist of two parts:
* 2010-04-14, next Tuesday after our meeting (actually Wednesday at
0001 UTC, which is 8:01pm US-Eastern time) -- an orientation in
#fedora-docs describing how this process works, why it's important,
and how easy it is to help.
* 2010-04-17, next Friday evening US-Eastern time, we'll gather anyone
who wants to help, and make sure they have any group memberships or
other assistance they need for the actual porting.
The porting of content will happen between 2010-04-19, when the
release notes on the wiki freeze, and 2010-04-26, when the last POT/PO
files need to be in the hands of L10n. Hopefully there will be very
little to do, if we're keeping up with things as we go.
People interested in release notes will want to have the beat pages on
their wiki watchlist (you can set this up in your personal
preferences) so they know when changes happen.
Given the schedule change that occurred as a result of the Beta slip,
I would like to suggest that we move the "content party" (that's what
I'm calling it now so it doesn't sound like "Porta Potty") back by one
week as well. So it will be held on 2010-04-21 and 2010-04-24.
