In bits and annoucements we prefer to be more verbose, so the message is
complete and understandable for the wider audience, even the ones not
familiarized with the topic.

Given that this is a short news/update on former news, we think it's better if
you send it to the LTS-announce mailing list, and from the publicity team we
can microblog it and mention it in the next DPN.

If you still want to publish the info in bits.debian.org, please review our
alternative proposal at https://pressblicity.titanpad.com/20

We realize that we in the Publicity team need to improve the documentation on
how we approach the many different debian channels, and your email
announcement has started an internal discussion about how to improve and
make it known how the Publicity channels can best be used.  We're sorry we
were delaying to reply you because of this.
