Updating the Debian Publicity Team delegation

Dear Debian Developers

I hereby appoint the following developers as members of the Debian
Publicity Team:

 - Anupa Ann Joseph (anupa)
 - Donald Norwood (donald)
 - Jean-Pierre (jipege)
 - Joost van Baal-Ilić (joostvb)

Welcome to Jean-Pierre and Joost joining this delegation, both of whom
have been active in the team for a while.

Any previous delegation to the same team, not explicitly listed above,
is revoked. The delegation is not time-limited; it will be effective
until further changes by present or future Project Leaders.

Task Description

* The publicity team moderate news and announcements in all the Debian
  official resources:

  - mailing lists of general interest, such as debian-announce and
    debian-news (but not the the localized -news-$lang mailing lists)

  - the official blog of the Debian project, "Bits from Debian"

  - any official social media of the project

  - and any other channels where Debian gets an official online

* The team is also responsible for the maintenance of the News
  part of the English version of the Debian website (i.e. the content
  currently located under webwml/english/News/).

* The team is in charge of deciding the most suitable publication
  venue or venues for announcements and when they are published.

* Team members must word articles in a way that reflects the Debian
  project's stance on issues rather than their own personal opinion.

* Finally, the Publicity Team is the official Debian contact point
  for press inquiries and media people outside Debian. When acting in
  such capacity, members of the team act as a spokesperson of the
  Debian Project.
