I have been following the marketing thread since yesterday, and I apologize again for
sending our reporters a subject line that was misinterpreted. I was excited to make sure
the Beta release received a lot of good coverage, and I will definitely make sure the same
thing doesn't happen again, especially with the upcoming GA.

Here is the deal:
Red Hat PR folks have always helped with spreading the word, whether for
Alpha/Beta/Final or otherwise. In this particular case, an article
*similar* to a press release was posted regarding the Beta to the Red
Hat news blog
Here's my proposal: it would be awesome if the Red Hat PR people will
add to the check-list of things to do at a release one more bullet:
"* Make sure the announcement is not mistaken AGAIN"
Is F17 release all over again:
we seem to never learn and repeat the mistake at each release, perhaps
that's why Jóhann was so annoyed.
