Re: 10.10 Maverick Manual Freeze Date Announced - 11.04 Natty Ubuntu Manual Milestones Announced


Thanks, Rick, for sending these dates.  Would it be possible to add
all these milestones to the Google calendar we generated last week?
Having these dates in front of me several times each day would help
ensure I don't miss a writing or editing deadline.

Thanks to everyone for all this planning.  I'm excited that we're
getting back on track.
