creating an ad for the Linux Journal
LJ is currently working on the September issue. I was not given the
deadline for submissions, but it is safe to say that it is less than
1 month away. :)
No one has come forward yet to start working on the ad. I have negligible
drawing ability, otherwise I'd work on something. What little I know of
advertising is we need to answer the basics:
What: version 2.0, fully glibc, updateable in place, latest X, etc...
When: good question. I hope it is safe to assume we'll have 2.0 out
by September though.
Where: point to our homepage and also to http://www.debian.org/vendors.html
Please, if you have any artistic ability, start doodling and see if you can
come up with a good ad for us.
Below is the information I was sent regarding what formats they will accept.
