(cc:ing Brett as he may be keeping a list of people interested in
hearing about that announcement when it happens.)

I will try to remember to do that, however your best bet is probably
to put FSF news and blogs in your RSS reader of choice:

(don't cc: it in a message to a bunch of other people, as it is an RT
ticket tracking queue).
