Some comments:

It should probably include a place for an archive of past press releases.

I believe articles like "of" and "for" should not be capitalized in 
headings. Also, in Bruce's guidelines, "Advice" should be spelt with
a "c", not an "s". I presume the guidelines article was posted to a
mailing list at some point? I tend to prefer to have some way of 
finding the original (including a Date: and list-name would be a 
start. The date would be particularly useful). A note that Bruce
is no longer "Debian Project Leader", would probably also be 
appropriate, and I'm unsure as to whether Bruce is still "of SPI".

I note that that's a link outside your publicity page. I'd be
disinclined to do that, personally. At least without noting that 
it's an external site.

(Oh, and by the by, Aust. PC has a homepage at http://apcmag.com/,
and Dr Dobbs has one at http://www.ddj.com/)

I'm presuming that the page is intended to help people promote
Debian, rather than to promote Debian in itself. In which case it
would probably also be useful to have a collection of logos and
pointers to packaging suggestions for CD resellers (or, atm, to the 
contest). It might or might not be useful to have a pointer to the
CD reseller README as well.

I don't speak for anyone save myself. PGP encrypted mail preferred.
