+1 - thanks for getting this started, Ankur. Things are moving fast 
around here, and anything we can do to help with transparency outreach 
around the situation is a Good Thing. I'll post some resources in just a 
moment (Paul's announcement - which he linked to in this thread - is one 
of them, and where I'd personally start pointing people and articles 
to), with the caveat that this situation *is* still evolving rapidly.

Give me a moment and I'll round up some links... I'm also hoping folks 
with more PR experience can chime in here with 
thoughts/advice/tips/strategies/examples of similar issues being handled 
well in the past.
