Sorry but IMHO this process failed. Just today evening (Hamburg time) 
someone has published again website changes.

If we rely on a process that is so fragile, then IMHO we shouldn't do 
this. Because there will be always somebody:

- who doesn't know this

- who isn't aware of the consequences of her/his changes
   (do you all know that a change on a NL webpage will also
   publish everything else in staging?)

- who hasn't seen a "please don't publish the website until further
   notice" mail
   (to be honest, I haven't seen a clear note that is
   forbidden at the moment, too)

- etc.

The other solution would be to completely not change anything (incl. no 
commits) to the website until the release is, e.g., 1 hour away which is 
also nothing I would like to see as it's not flexible enough.

Are there other opinions/suggestions?

My 2 ct.
