How To Spread Word About My FOSS Project?

An anonymous reader writes “I’m in a bit of a bind with an open source web software project of mine. It’s a very small project that I’ve been developing for over three years. By now it’s got a promising feature set, but very few users and virtually no community around it. The problem is that people I have asked to try it refuse to do so because it doesn’t have a thriving community. It’s an infinite loop: without users, we won’t have a community, and without a community, users aren’t coming. So, Slashdot, my question is: how can I build a community and help get the word out about a project led by 2 people and with only 5-6 regulars on our forum and IRC?”
