So, I generally envisioned the Planet section as a place for posts from
people in the community. Press releases wouldn't quite fit *what I had
in mind* but I'm open to hearing what other folks think. 

I wouldn't hesitate to add a post from a *person in the community* with
much the same information, but I hesitate to start pointing to press
releases from the weekly news. Again - I would like to hear opinions,
but AFAIK, it's not a typical practice in a community publication to
link to press releases. 

The -marketing list is a fine place to make note of this sort of thing,
though. It helps people who are interested in promoting CloudStack know
what's going on. I'd also love to see things like this:

Where members of the marketing list send news items to the list so
people are aware of them & can help amplify coverage when it's something
we'd like to see get wider attention. (And perhaps provide *gentle*
feedback if an author has not gotten their facts entirely correct.)
