Great, thanks for noticing. Could someone from the kernel team outline
the core information that you want to be in such an announcement? Could
be as simple as an outline:

- preferred way for users to install the update (adding sources.list
  line or downloading raw .deb-s? in the second case, which flavor?)

- preferred way to report issues (BTS or something else?)

- etc.

The above would allow people from publicity to draft an announcement and
submit it for your review. Alternatively, if you want to draft one and
pass it through, even better :-)
