Sorry, should have mentioned that press@ is a privately archived list. 
It's where the press team may discuss pre-release information, along 
with discussing ASF policy and the like, and thus is one of the few 
lists that is not publicly archived.

Just email press@ with questions and they will be sure to include you 
(or the list, as appropriate) with replies.

- Shane

P.S. Some foundation-level lists, including press@, trademarks@, and 
board@ - where the ASF may discusses either personnel or internal policy 
matters - are the rare exceptions to the general concept that everything 
that can be done on a publicly archived list should be done on a 
publicly archived list.  The private@ lists for all (P)PMCs are the 
other privately archived exception.
