Thanks Barry,
I think a semi regular communication such as you are creating is an 
excellent idea.
It will keep foss4g on people's mind, and start creating the "buzz" 
which attracts delegates.

I suggest that you keep track of such updates on a wiki page so that 
future conferences will be able to easily see your history of 
communication, which will help them be reminded in what communication 
they should send out too.

For foss4g 2009 we called our communications "press releases", and 
linked them all in from here:

You might prefer to have a similar jump page which points to email archives.
