Okay, so if I understand correctly, we'll want to co-ordinate Joey and some folks from DebConf10 regarding this and ask that they get some more details from Joey an assemble a blog post. Then we take the salient facts from that post and add a snippet to Debian Project News (which I can do) and create a Press Release (which I've never done for Debian, so I'd like help.)
I know hydroxide a bit and he's helping with DebConf10 so I'll contact him to see if we can co-ordinate with Joey.
