The one we are doing for FC 5 is not a generic-like press release.  It
directly appeals to the Linux user and would make little sense those
without some technical clue.

If you can throw together five or seven paragraphs that cover:

* What (FC 5 release)
* What Fedora Project is
* Blurb about how cool FLOSS is and why
* What killer features are here that would attract the general desktop
* One or two links (v. the 10,000 in the technical PR)

That would be great.  I want to see this available, as well.

We have a press-release module that has a template, DTD, and Makefile
for doing press releases.  We need a new module to contain the actual
content, I'll get that set up.
