This distribution was broader than for R6.7. No complaints were heard. I've 
heard enough to know what's necessary next time. But we did have complaints 
about broadcasting to non-X.Org lists!

X.Org benefits greatly from a single official announcement. 

Please submit list names which should receive these announcements. We did 
distribute to about 160 news organizations, etc.
