[arch-dev-public] Guidelines for news posting

Hi all,

in light of recent events, we had a little get-together in #archlinux-staff
to hack on an initial suggestion on guidelines for news posting. If we can
agree on these, they should be added on the news posting page on archweb
(and perhaps somewhere on the wiki).

The draft we came up with is this:

Every news post needs to have a corresponding draft submitted to
arch-dev-public and wait for feedback for at least 24 hours unless:
    1. it is urgent (and would be too late after 24 hours)
    2. it is a simple --overwrite rule, or
    3. there are strong reasons for the team member posting the draft to
believe that it should not be visible to the public before it is announced.
In this third case, the draft should be submitted to the
staff at lists.archlinux.org ML instead.

Happy to hear about feedback.
