Sorry, Louis -- not ignoring you; have been offsite for most of the day.

Usually we (ASF Marketing & Publicity) need more than same-day notice to coordinate such

I know there's been discussion about this on the Membership side as well, but the consensus
(thus far) is to not black out *, as was suggested. No further action has been
decided upon, IIRC.

Let's also keep in mind that the ASF Infrastructure team need to be kept abreast of any decisions/proposals
here as well, as they're the ones capable of pulling the trigger on the site.
