Deolalikar sent his manuscript to 22 very distinguished
researchers. Neither the manuscript nor the covering
note swore the recipients to secrecy, so the purported proof
was very rapidly disseminated.
Under these circumstances, I believe that Vinay
Deolalikar "released the purported proof into the wild."
