Without having quite enough of a background with Debian to suggest other
neat new stuff that's changed since bo, I can perhaps suggest some
additional recipients for the as yet unwritten press release.

Linux Journal and slashdot would seem obvious additional candidates. 
_Australian Personal Computer_ (the News/Features editor at July '97 was
Helen Dancer <HDancer@acp.com.au>) is one Australian mag that would
be worth including. I imagine there'd be huge numbers of other local 
magazines that should be sent information. Do we already have a list
of such things?

I'd also be inclined to send the information to techy mags such as 
Dr Dobb's Journal, for inclusion/summarization in their news bites

FWIW, Nils' formatting requirements seemed quite reasonable to this 
uneducated hacker.
