That was such a thread break that I looked in the archive and found
- is that what this is about?

Of course, no DD is compelled to contribute, but we care about debian
and that's why we're here, you know?  Can't we rejoice in that common
cause and just deal with the other stuff?

At its core, it looks like a complaint that the actual process being
undocumented, which is made more explicit in

Where is the attempt to impose a new process?  The cited wiki page
http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Publicity wasn't written by FK and FK
only made process suggestions when people asked.  Some of the
follow-ups get a bit off-colour, but from several people.

Personally, I don't care whether the workflow is documented as-is
or changed, but describing it may avoid disappointing other DDs.

ObOffer: I'll configure IRC monitoring of #debian-publicity for and
subscribe any DD who wants to receive its output, if that's OK.
Or not if it's not.
