I like the idea.
I wonder if we could think of something concrete to accompany the
announcement? For example KDE recently held a party to celebrate it's 10th
birthday... the photos and guest list added weight and interest to a story
that could otherwise seem quite bland. Not that I think women in FLOSS is a
bland story, but that it doesn't seem like an news story.
Some awards? Some examples of recent contributions? Along similar lines, some
interviews with key people from a number of projects? Not great ideas, anyone
