Thanks Jos,

I'ld love a dedicated promo/marketing dude that comes to every pim &
akonadi meeting, blogs regular announcements and updates and tries to
educate the developers. I've indicated that a couple of times here and
there, but apart from some incidental help (which I appreciate), nothing
structural has been done. And I think that is very needed.
