SSSD publicity problem

I'm trying to figure out how to do a little PR around the SSSD (the
System Security Services Daemon). I've been tracking mentions of it
around the web with Google Alerts and in the last few weeks, there have
been several dozen hits... all in the Ubuntu context -_-

So I'm looking for advice on how to draw attention to the fact that this
is a Fedora project. And moreover, works better on Fedora, since we have
authconfig making setup a breeze.

The SSSD is an advertised Feature for Fedora 13:

My main concern is that most of the chatter that Google Alerts has been
picking up have been leading back to blogs written about the Ubuntu
package of SSSD (which is an older version than what is available in
Fedora and also has no UI for configuring it).

I've written the occasional blog post about SSSD, but they don't seem to
get picked up and reprinted in nearly as many places as the Ubuntu blogs
do. I'd really like for us to find a way to clue people in that the SSSD
is, first and foremost, a Fedora project.
