Most certainly the board should directly be involved when the community is violated like that...
Perhaps in the future LWN could stick with official marketing material and announcements from the projects marketing group instead of passing on Red Hat's one...

I'm just saying they should stick to the upstream one instead of passing on corporate claiming community's work their own.
In fact I expect it to be announced then and there on the 22 but no later then 24 encase the lwn writers were to busy participating with their loved ones in the holiday irony that the thanksgiving and black friday are.

You mean the same board that I have had open ticket with over a year now to clarify the project stance against RHEL customers. An ticket which they could have copied more or less Matthews response on -devel at that time and wikify it. Thanks but no thanks...
"and yes, you are indeed complaining that LWN published a press release instead of a community announcement when in fact, no such community announcement exists."
Yes that is exactly what I'm doing and at the right place doing so and I know I responded with exactly that knowledge that no such announcement had been made that I was aware of 25 minutes *before* this comment of yours here...
Which rather begs the question how the whole marketing community, our FPM and our FPL missed that....
"If you look back on all previous releases, LWN has published community announcements."
Yes and you don't see me complaining about those published community announcements thus your point being?
