Yeah, simple.  But it'll look funny if it ever plays out to it's full
extent.

    contributor: "Announcing the Fedora foo Project!" x <# of announces>

    FB: "Erm, no.  You need to go correct yourself and say it's a SIG"

    contributor: "Sorry, it's really the Fedora foo SIG!" x <announces>

    <time passes and the SIG works well>

    FB: "Announcing the Fedora foo Project!"

    everyone else: "WTH?"

Maybe not bad, but still looks funny.
