Fedora automatically gets press when the test releases go out, and will
also get some when the Foundation is announced, so if there is a good
set of pages on participating the URL could be promoted on the press

Other channels I could think of, which could be used at pretty much any

- fedora-list
- fedora-announce
- FedoraNews

Also possible, but time-sensitive:

- Red Hat Magazine
- print Linux magazines (I'm sure that at least one I've seen has a
"Help Wanted" section for Open Source projects)
- the release notes themselves (there was a help wanted sign on the
FC4t1 notes)
