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

This is a great start. Note, however, that the "Alpha release" is only the beginning of the testing cycle which has a primary focus of making sure the distro installs and runs.

There will also be a beta release and a series of weekly snapshot releases. More information can be found on the release engineering schedule: http://poelstra.fedorapeople.org/schedules/f-9/f-9-releng-tasks.html
