Re: Press release for OSUOSL give6 campaing

Hi Diego,

A quick question -- when you say the board, do you mean the board is
using GNOME funds for this or the board each donated $6?

I think that makes a significant difference...

Is OSUOSL doing a press push or release? We probably should be
contributing a quote to their release or something rather than driving
