The question was more about the external entities - if it's more luck it
gets a good coverage or we have a proper distribution channel for
announcements to media. And that Fedora announcement precedes RH one (as
it was explained in LWN comments).
We only ship things to those lists. Most of the
media who pay attention
are subscribed to at least announce list, though many are also
subscribed to the marketing list as well for news.
The press(a)fp.o mailing address is basically "incoming only."
Direct outreach/contact has always been handled by someone at RHT in the
PR department, in conjunction with the FPL, because they have the
extensive database of contacts and etc. that is meticulously pruned and
kept up to date, have access to press wire, etc.
