I think we shouldn't put the burden of communicating with the general
public on the developers. Sebastian is doing an awesome amount of work
and he may not have too many spare cycles to think about everything
that is required to communicate to the different people.

What if we developers only announce in developer-oriented forums and
someone else (marketing team?) takes the task of communicating it to
end users?
