Apache has a Press team led by the wonderful Sally here:

   http://www.apache.org/press/

Who tweets regularly:

   http://twitter.com/TheASF

Any Apache press releases should be coordinated with them on 
press@apache.org - once the PPMC here has some specific questions about 
publicity here, you should ping press@ to get a conversation started 
there.

Note that the Apache Incubator has specific policies about press 
releases for incubating projects:

   http://incubator.apache.org/guides/branding.html

In terms of *what* to say, it's up to the project to decide, and 
typically just get any final signoff from press@.  The ASF has a 
corporate press release account and will issue official releases for 
major news from any of our projects.

Oh, and the official ASF boilerplate is available:
