Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Release plan

** {{Thumbs up}} The changelog can be easily written by using "git log", searching the issue tracker and by going through the last 6 newsletters published since the previous release. It might make sense to explicitly add a "ChangeLog" message to important commits, so that the Changelog can be compiled more easily ?
** Alternatively, request developers to add major changes also to $FG_SRC/ChangeLog again (last updated in 2001)?
** for the web-based release announcement, it would be helpful to have screen shots or even youtube videos to demonstrate new features- get the community involved EARLY
** it may make sense to also allow artwork contributors to contribute new splash screen images for use in the upcoming release. The screen shot contest should provide plenty of options [http://www.flightgear.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=16795].
** for the changelog we should early on invite volunteers to help translate it, useful for the release promotion
** having dedicated promo videos sounds like a good idea, see [http://flightgear.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=19158]
** The RC announcement should also contain links to 1) the issue tracker and 2) the RC subforum [http://www.mail-archive.com/flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg39222.html]
