Cameron had an extensive protocol for getting out
FOSS4G 2009 announcements.  It include
news_item at osgeo.org and a list of key community
members in the various projects who were asked to
forward the announcements to their project.

I would encourage you to forward the announcement
now to news_item at osgeo.org and I'll publish it on
the main osgeo announce channel.  Then review
Cameron's protocol - likely in the wiki.  If not, ask
him for details.

I personally wouldn't mind if we were slightly less
aggressive about getting all the announcements out
to all likely locations.  But there are a few key
announcements that do need to be widely  distributed.
