A huge thank you to everyone who helped make the CentOS Stream 9 launch 
messaging happen. ESPECIALLY those who helped craft the blog post.

We are live with the messaging, as of Friday morning. (Not ideal timing, 
but we will be re-amplifying today.)

SJVN did a nice article on it - 
https://www.zdnet.com/article/red-hats-centos-stream-9-linux-arrives/ - 
and used a lot of the phrases from the article, which I was very pleased 

And the website looks *amazing*. A HUGE thank you to Alain and Fabian 
for that. Just ... wow.

I will be sending out the December newsletter tomorrow, promoting this 
further. That's being drafted at 
https://hackmd.io/tva9SEQvRlWkzPmuJ-XBSw?edit today, if you want to help.

The conversation on r/CentOS and r/Linux was *mostly* positive. There 
were, of course, some trolls that emerged from their caves, but for the 
most part it was people who understood the message, and were largely 
positive about it. So that was nice, too.

Onward and upward. Shosholoza!
