So this is a good example for all of us to talk around.

Fedora has an announcement to make that is somewhat newsworthy.

It's certainly an announcement that should come from the Fedora Project 
Leader, and fedora-announce-list is the obvious place to make it.

Paul did a good job of providing some context for what the announcement 
means in his email.

Fedora Planet is also a good place for other Fedora folks to add 
commentary to the announcement, etc.

If a media person decides to pick it up and write a little article about 
it, we can't force them to ping us for more information, but we can give 
them as much context as possible.

I think we could also be well served by thinking about our "Press Page" 
on the Fedora wiki.

Sort of a page that says "are you trying to write an article about 
Fedora?  Here's some useful resources:"

2) Fedora Weekly News
3) Fedora Planet
