I don't know, if that was already discussed, or if it is even possible. However, as much as it sounds unlikely:
Is there a way to revive the original Tremulous and put it on steam as a free to play game? Say that this is only just a sip from what is to come.
If it was possible and not too difficult, you could make people see mechanics of the game and make them excited about Murnatan before it is finished.

It was discussed on their forum several times but it will probably never happen. First, you have to pay €90 to be able submit some game to Steam Greenlight and second, it is already dead game, they will not pay and support it in any way.

Lol, lets not beat around the bush here, the only active servers on 1.1 with regular players to this day are the Lettards, and a few clan servers like NoS whenever they have scrims.  The IOQuake3 engine -while being remarkably good for it's time and still very fun to play on- is outdated and looks ugly as hell by comparison to anything you will ever see released on Steam today.

Honestly, there's no sense in beating a dead horse.   :-\

I think that as long as Rota and Co. have a presentable game that is most definitely playable to submit to Steam, there will be no problems with publicity, provided they are lucky enough to get a day or two on the front page.

Once a hundred or two reviews start appearing with 80%+ on Murnatan's Steam page, people will start sharing the game with each other, and the rest will be history.

A few well-made video advertizements here and there would go a long way to getting the word out as well.
