Well, we're not in the business of saying "we're better than other";
also, we don't care about market shares. So I don't see how stating
factual truths about what's available in Debian (as we did, say, with
[1] or more back in time with [2]) could backfire.

People will of course be free to say « look at those late-comers to the
party », but they could do that anyway, no matter the press release.
And, with the press release, we'd still have the benefit of having
informed Debian users of new available stuff and called for testing
about it.
