I definitely take part of the blame here. Obey pinged me on IRC, just
because he needed signature to send to d-d-a (hence I did that as a
regular DD); I should have thought about redirecting him to -publicity
instead.  Sorry about that, it won't happen again in the future.

While I'm at it, is it documented anywhere the work-flow to get a proper
announce via -publicity/press being a regular developer? I've skimmed
briefly through http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Publicity but I can't find
it. I'll be even more happy to obey the actual rules once I know them :)
(no, that's not supposed to be an excuse for not contacting you in the
above matter).
