I wonder if we should delay the release announcement until we can link
to a bunch of .deb/.rpm/GUIs/* from it. This way, once we do announce@,
we can hope for a higher proportion of readers to act about it.
(I'm not proposing to change the "no official binary releases" policy;
just to wait until downstreams have made their own binaries available)
