Very interesting that Goodyear is focusing a lot of their development effort on the emerging gravel market. Also confirms the general trend towards wider tubeless tires on pavement and dirt.

Has anyone heard about availability on these tires, and who might be selling them?

Good question - here is some input from Bikepacking.com: http://www.bikepacking.com/news/goodyear-mountain-bike-tires/
My guess is the roll out in NA is ramping up. If you want some tomorrow though, you may be out of luck.

Intriguing!  I'll wait to let Goodyear get some practice in cycling before I buy.  I'm sure their compounds are good, but a bike tire is not a car tire.   And I'm sure that they headhunted a couple of bike tire designers, but... I think there's a lot to learn.  So I'll wait.  

But I'm glad to see them enter the market.  Pirelli did so too, albeit just for road, I think.

Can’t wait, I like new tires. Prices look reasonable too. Here’s a link to a distributor. https://www.hawleyusa.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?id=5637344117
