I'm against publicity - otherwise, why would I be putting my name publically
on a mailing list? - I just don't see why it needed to go to all those
mailing lists (especially a list for discussion of technical issues - which
publicity, I hope you'll agree, is not).

So you make someone responsible for it and let them run with it.  Committees
result in nothing getting done - because everybody thinks it's a great idea
but nobody thinks it's their responsibility.  If there's nobody with clear
responsibility for the matter - JFDI.
