I suggest to ask a review for press releases sent to debian-news, unless
there is something urgent. The publicity team can help with that:
debian-l10n-english@lists.debian.org  may also help for strictly
linguistic issues.
1. Many thanks for telling _me_ how the publicity team works.
2. Don't send full quotes.
3. Don't CCc me, I read the list.
Note that I didn't Cc you, I put you in To.
4. You mean like the following:

> From #debconf-team
18:30:14<  Tolimar>  svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/publicity/announcements/en/2011/2011-07-30-debconf-finished.wml is the draft for the "DebConf finished" announcement.
18:30:35<  Tolimar>  Please review now (or remain for ever silent...) ;)

> From #debian-publicity
18:29:05<  Tolimar>  Anyone:  Please review the announcement NOW.

Or looking at the svn log:

Review by aba
Yes. I didn't realize the announcement had so many reviews, it looked as if it hadn't been reviewed to me. I agree one would think reviews by all of these would ensure fair quality :-/ In this case, I would recommend to also ask a review from the publicity team in the future (which you already did this time, but - as explained on http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Publicity/DeveloperInformation - review should be asked on the mailing list, in general).

Publicity team: this incident makes me realize that some stuff can actually go through us with only a part of the team being noticed. I am subscribed to the debian-publicity list but didn't get any mail about the DebConf finished announcement. I just learn now that the team has an IRC channel. However, I'm not sure that's a real solution. I for one can hardly be on IRC 24-7. We also have the publicity-commits list, but that has over a hundred mails per month on average, which I find high for the volume of content we treat.

Do we have a better solution for this?
Should we change the workflow so that adding an announcement has to be accompanied by a mail to debian-publicity? Would there be a way to have a lower-traffic list of automatic notifications, perhaps just for additions of content :-?
You once wrote, you'll still as long as you are needed.  Apparently you
are no longer needed.
I would be interested to know if this statement is based on anything.
   So go away!

Best Regards,
