While I understand that the PR effect would be good, I encourage you
not to do that. Instead, I'd suggest just closing the bug as
described at :

It would be probably be worth listing issues that were resolved this
way somewhere on the Technical Committee website. It is the best
possible outcome and worth celebrating.
