Alpha release is a named release and worthy of press/marketing
attention:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/9/Schedule

This was a self-criticism in the sense that we all sat in a room with
Leigh Day, agreed that March was a good deadline for having the
marketing plan together, and none of us thought about the upcoming Alpha
release. ;-D

The final marketing plan needs to start with activity sometime soon
after a numbered release, drawing attention to feature work in progress,
the ongoing interviews, etc.
