OK I have read this.

I have read the particular point "publicity activities":
"Podlings MUST coordinate with the Apache Public Relations Committee on all publicity activities
by a podling."

question:
Is it possible to "Apache Public Relations Committee" a draft of a German press release to
be transmitted so that confirms this?

Do I understand correctly that we e.g. _german_ press reports are to discuss press@apache.org?
Who understands German at press@apache.org? I understand that you have "coordinate" said,
but "coordinate" needs discuss. 

And for e.g. Germany, Austria, Switzerland, we need german-language press releases.

Here is an example of a press release from de-OOo from the year 2010:

OK, but that's not what i mean and what we need first for the national information of users.

Let me say it clearly:

AOO is in a difficult situation and we should do everything to keep ex-OOo users and attract
new users for AOO.

AOO is initially a product for end users and not for it-specialists and end users need information
such as in magazines (for example http://www.heise.de/ct/inhalt/), and magazines need national-language
press releases.
