Dude... "I'm happy to work together with whoever provides proper
information for a potential press release" - you know just as well
as I do that that basically means you want a complete press release,
in which case I can just as well send it out myself. The benefits
of that are faster translation and better local contacts.

Of course, I would prefer not to do it that way, but if the only
alternative is to "cooperate with you" (i.e. I do all the work to
get a press release that is redacted without my/our consent), then
I am not interested.

If instead the Debian press team would decide to send someone to
DebConf to cover the event, that would be something else.

"Press releases are an advertising platform for the Debian project
and not for third parties."
