This would be a great oppty for a blog posting on www.press.redhat.com,
Red Hat's corporate communications blog.  We've posted a number of
"Fedora Team" blogs in the past that Max has helped us put together:
http://www.press.redhat.com/category/fedora/.  We use this site to give
our press contacts more information about what's going on within Red Hat
when a press release isn't the right medium of communication.  I can put
together a draft of the blog from the Alpha release notes link you've
sent, and will then send around for feedback/edits.  We can post it this
week once we've finalized the content.  What do you think?

Yeah that sounds awesome and would be much appreciated :)

Looking forward to seeing it...

Here is a quick first draft of the blog. Anyone is welcome to add in edits or more details.

Help Shape Fedora 9: Alpha Release Now Available
by Fedora Team

As Fedora (http://www.fedoraproject.org) contributors, the most exciting part of the development process of new Fedora distributions is determining which cool, new features will be included in the next release. Fedora 9 is due out at the end of April 2008, and we started making plans for it as soon as we released Fedora 8 back in November. We’ve already begun to examine which changes and features we want included in this release, and with the Fedora 9 Alpha release today, it’s time for the whole community’s input.

During each Fedora cycle, we have an Alpha release that gives everyone the opportunity to provide feedback on what what work has been done so far. It’s the first time that the larger Fedora community can get really involved in testing out the new features and is given the opportunity provide input on what’s working, and what’s not. It’s easy to gain access to the Alpha release because you don’t have to install any software -- everything you need is provided through live CDs. Then, to give us feedback, you can file bug reports and enhancement requests and make other recommendations.

If you want to help us test and shape the next release of Fedora, you can find details about the new features we’re exploring, about how to get involved in the Alpha release and about how to provide feedback and get involved in the process by visiting our Fedora 9 Alpha release notes.
