Today is the day!

Ok team, I think we're ready.

I've taken another look at the article titles and excerpts, though I'd
like another pair of eyes to review if possible, and compared them to
previous articles, and I think they look good.

I've re-sized the images into thumbnails in the Gourmet Recipe Manager
article to match the sizes in a previous article.

Natan sent in his about the author blurb.

I've taken the liberty of updating
- my thought being as we haven't had a release in over a year, and in
some ways it's a new team.  If you disagree with the changes, please
let me know, as I'm sure past writers and editors contributed heavily,
and I don't mean to offend anyone.  I also added Natan and Jayson as
writers - since they both wrote articles in this edition and have
signed up for articles in edition 15, I thought I'd add them to thank
them as they have consecutive contributions.

For issue 15, I'd like to update our CC license from CC SA-BY 2.0 to
CC SA-BY 3.0 (only difference - you can use a similar license rather
than the exact same one if build upon the work - I think this may be
important for Sri's idea of getting our content in to other sources).

Here is my draft of the release announcement, as recommended by

The GNOME Journal, May 2009 Edition

Are you all ready to blog and micro-blog about today's release?!  (I
know I am - I plan on doing a general microblog, and then every hour
mentioning one specific article).
