Apache has some rules and restrictions related to press releases,
etc., from podlings under incubation.   See this page:

My reading of this is we cannot just assume "lazy consensus" but we
need to reach out to and coordinate with them on any
formal publicity activities.

However, there are also a range of informal activities that do not
require this additional review, like blog posts, announcements to the
ooo-announce list, social media campaigns, etc.  These could be
discussed on the list.
