I don't know, but when I wrote that mail I went before to:
* - announcement linked
* - nothing
* - nothing

Given the timestamps of the mails it was at least half an hour after Albert 
pushed the announcement.

So that looks to me like there was some coordination missing or the dot taking 
too long to publish the page (I had seen cases when one news was on dko but 
not on

Anyway when I first shared the news on G+ there was no link on dot I could 
share ;-) I honestly thought that there won't be one.
