About WordPress Press Kit

We also published the Press Kit we’ve been working on since WCUS Contributor Day.  Thanks to @andreamiddleton and Community for bringing this to us. @marybaum and @jenblogs4u rocked this with tons of help from @nuanel to make sure it’s translation ready. We edited text originally written for CMS Garden by the German WP Community. You rock, Robert!
