I have a list from Linux World Expo 2002 with about 40 press contacts.  I also 
have a few who should preferably get e-mail direct from me.

However, I feel pretty strongly that we should keep this release to the 
online-tech-OSS press, and not bother with the "mainstream" press.  For 
example, I can't imagine explaining what's in this release to the Seattle 
Times.

Also, I have a standing offer from Zapatec.com (which runs on PostgreSQL) to 
allow us to set up an online "Zapatec app" that could be a mail-blaster for 
press releases.   This would be particularly useful for handling press 
releases in several languages.
