Haven't we got enough fas accounts with people who don't actually do 
anything ? I personally think, although a nice idea,a full FAS account 
might be a bit over the top and even counter-productive. However,
highlighting that users can be added to the Fedora announce list, maybe 
letting them sign up via anaconda, might be a good idea. Also make sure 
people understand we have docs, and other informational material and the 
wiki page.
