IEEE 754 status and availability of approved draft

I was on an IEEE-SA telecon yesterday where the availability of the
approved IEEE 754 final ballot draft was discussed (ISO WG14 and WG21
needing this in short term). In summary:
The final ballot draft of IEEE P754 Standard for Floating-point Arithmetic
was approved in June 2008
IEEE SA is keen for other standards bodies to have access to this draft
pending the publication of the standard (currently expected 29 August 2008
-- there will be very minor editorial changes, new front-matter, etc., but
no technical changes permitted).
Therefore I can let ECMA TC49 participants have a copy of draft 1.9.0.
What is the best way to effect that?
It is expected that anyone who does receive a copy will handle it
professionally, not distribute it further, etc.
