I suggest for each PR, one person is in charge, who must announce the
deadline well in advance and overlooks the editing process. S/he can
appoint another person to take over. S/he then takes care of step 2.

Here I suggest we establish who'll take care of what beforehand.
E.g. while I can generally help with the German and Swiss markets,
we should have 1-2 people responsible for Heise who take the job
seriously with the long-term goal to build up a good relationship
with them. The same for the other media. And I suggest we also
approach the big newspapers a bit more, they occasionally have
articles on Linux, so why not on Debian...

Do we get www.d.o web stats for that?

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
