Please let the promo team know at least a few days beforehand when the release 
will be. If you want us we can try and help you write the announcement (pls 
give us a week) and maybe a feature guide (but of course a feature guide would 
take more than a week, think more like a month).

We'll also help promote the release to facebook, youtube (if you have video's) 
and other channels.

The dot editors also need a heads-up a few days before if you want a timely 
release announcement on the dot.
