As long as we include the announcement in our FWN, it should be picked
by most popular Linux news sites.
...and likely only Fedora users will read the FWN -- but those are not
exactly EPEL's target audience. Heck, and even some of the Fedorians
might miss it, as the FWN are quite long (/me wonders if it should have
a "summary" in the beginning for those that that just want a quick
overview -- but that's a different topic).
I think EPEL deserves a real announcement (e.g. like a Fedora release,
but a bit smaller).
