Well, my experience is up to now that the journalists pick up every
release update anyways. So, I think we have to accept that they consider
it interesting enough, and try to make sure in our own interest that
they understand it correct. I was considering to make a "new release
update published"-mail that summarizes what happens, but with some other
focus for debian-news.
