request for review: Gutsy release candidate announcement

I would suggest talking some more about bittorrent.  You encourage
people to use it, but without motivation.  Overloaded download sites
is a big source of frustration and barrier to some users.
So I suggest incorporating some of the language at

about how much faster your experience will be, and perhaps how much
you can help your friends out if you keep your torrent running a
while as a seed.

Also, I suggest getting this bug fixed so the release pages make it
easier for people to find the torrents (and we stop pointing to an
advertising site for commercial movie downloads....)
