I'd like to make a request. It is much, much easier to report on these things quickly if there is a 
URL in the press release that points to the news.

Is it possible in future to include such a URL in the news item please? Given you are using 
WordPress to publish the news, it's easy to know the URL in advance and it will make it far easier 
to tweet, report and generally talk about if it's there at the bottom of the release, as:

News story:
you can always point to the Archive-Link from the mail-header, in this
case Archived-At:

But there you get a 404 mistake (broken link).

I reported this last week.

And I forgot about the issue although knowing from the website-list.

And Simon is right, the journalists shouldn't be recommended to do so,
I was thinking of us inside the project.

So it must be the way blogging->copying the link->pasting to
mail->sending the announcement with the link. Not nice, but possible.


IMO, from a marketing point of view, we should provide as much information, that is as easily quotable, easily copyable, as easily found, as easily linked for the media to find and to publish. If this means adding additional links to our announcements, then we should consider this well invested time to promote our product. We should never make it difficult for the media to find the original official announcements.

We should make sure that the "blog" linking the announcement and the "announcement" mailing lists are quoted for our media partners.
