Exactly. Wikipedia has had a lot of coverage; if we push for too much more,
people will start labeling it "hype". That doesn't mean that we shouldn't
look for help from appropriate sources (USENET, mailing lists, etc), but
let's quietly work away, and wait until we have some big news before we
seek more press coverage.
