Normally a good start would be an announcement in the international
forum for all those who did not read the previous forum posts about
this issue. Unfortunately the matching section in the forum is not
reserved for official announcements by
board/council/forum-administration, so this "announcement" will be as
non-prominent as any other usual forum post.
