I guess it depends. I forward the beta announcements to many journalists
in Germany, and we receive lots of good feedback and articles, so this
is good PR for us.

I am not worried by the media, but by people who download the beta and are disappointed by the poor quality (especially on Windows). Coverage is not the only parameter that we have to look for when we communicate to the press. Journalists are an intermediary between us and the users and must be handled as such.

Anyway, I am not prohibiting anything, but just suggesting to analyze carefully the situation before every announcement, not only in term of output (what we get) but also in term of outtake (quality of message) and outcome (what we achieve).

I am usually for an aggressive communication strategy, but the issues that we have had with the betas of LibreOffice 3.4 suggest to slow down a little bit, especially in consideration of the fact that prolly there won't be a 3.4 version of OOo.
