One of the main uses of the dot-editors mailing list is to allow 
announcement, discussion & review of upcoming dot stories and is 
particularly suitable for when stories are "secret". This has worked very 
well for at least the decade I have been on the list

It is dot policy that before publishing the story, it should be reviewed 
by other editors. In the occasional situation where time is short and no 
replies have been made yet on the list, you would hunt people down on IRC 
to review it

Unfortunately Paul won't use it, if he had this situation would almost 
certainly have been avoided

Most importantly, I am not aware of any editors, including Jonathan, 
having ever disclosed a timed announcement on dot-editors. So Paul seems 
to have no evidence to back up his personal comments about Jonathan

Minor point, there is not a Promo Working Group. Probably just a bad 
choice of wording though
