My name is Benji & I would like to offer my support for the Fedora MIndshare.
I have not exactly got graphical design experience but I do have strong third party providers that our business uses. My strength is understanding people and how to bring attractive offerings to business owners and individuals.
I have designed and built websites on my own using various software but I prefer to help with content and getting attention.
I just wanted to see if there is anything I could do to help at anytime.

It is released. You should see an official email on the announcements list:

I'm not sure how this would reduce confusion.
In the past, we did Alpha releases, but we generally found that the usage of
them was quite low compared to the amount of effort it takes to produce and
test them as release artifacts. Instead, we decided to put efforts towards
making Rawhide continuously be at the quality level we previously expected
for Alpha releases.

This really gets out of the scope of testing and into Mindshare, so I've
CC'd that list.
In addition to the Beta announcement, we also run Magazine articles like
More would always be welcome, of course.

Yes, that would be great. I don't think we're going to do a comparative
review as an official Fedora Project release — better to stand on our own
merits and let others do the comparing — but I do always love to see videos
and articles like this (at least, when some thought has been put into it
rather than just being a listicle).
