Normaly the person who is on the loco-contacts list or who reads the  
fridge will push it into his locoteam.
So we will have a decentrale communitcation structure.

We have w.u.c/LoCoTeamList

Last time(Release notes) we spread it around on the loco-contacts list  
and at irc #ubuntu-marketing and #ubuntu-locoteams

>  - mailing list (yet another one? loco-news?)
>  - RSS Feed (use Launchpad loco-news project plus "announcement" RSS Feed)
>  - Wiki-based process.

I think we don´t need more, what we need is a review of the things we  
allready have(IRC,, ubuntu-news-team mailinglist,  
uwn, w.u.c, launchpad).
