Here's my ten cents - firstly what's your actual call to arms? Why
should anyone care about the issue? The press release should leave the
journo with a clear picture of: "UEFI Secure Boot is a danger to ... and
we would like x."
A good press release should be structured like:
What's it all about... "Linux Australia opposes UEFI Secure Boot"
Catchy short, paragraph grabbing the journo and laying out the problem
in two-three short sentences. Half the journos that read press releases
have zero idea what the technology is and what the implications are so
you need to lay out what it actually is and why they should bother to
care about it and your opinion on it.
3. Position & Backup
LA's position is that ... whatever the position is ... because ... xyz.
Backed up my x other organisations/research/etc.
4. Call to arms
LA would like people/govt/industry to do x and y.
5. Closing & Follow-up
Linux Australia is the peak body for Linux and open source software in
Australia and represents ... blah blah constituents, LCA, LUGs, etc,
etc. Links to contacts for the issue/sites/news etc.
