Status update:

We have a great blog post drafted at 
https://hackmd.io/@forbushd/BJC9Q9DSY which looks to me like it's 
(almost?) ready to go. Can we place have several of you review this and 
+1 it and/or make any edits/comments?

Personally, I think it's exactly the right length and depth of detail, 
with links to all of the right places.

Next, we need to put together the content for centos.org/stream9 which, 
because it can be updated going forward, can be launched when it is 
"good enough". I will be working on it this week, and would appreciate 
any contributions to that process. I'll be doing that here:
