Ideally, we could cut out the whole emailing for a pub request and the webmaster (but don't fire him or her!:)).  

Instead:

0. Log in.  
1. Point pub rules to document URI.   
2. Check box + input: WG (or Director) has given OK to publish + URI to decision.  
3. Pub rules check is done.  
4. Check box: "We want a news item", could notify the W3C Communications team (or not, removing another source of delay).  
5. If all pub rules pass, show "Publish Now!" button - which, moves document to /TR/.  
6. Call for exclusion is sent out automatically, if appropriate.   

This would allow people to publish as often as they like, so long as they meet the criteria and with just a few clicks.

What would be even more awesome would be to have a "Keep in sync" option for Editor's drafts, so after a FPWD, /TR/ and editor's drafts would be kept in sync… but so long as the Editor's draft meets Pub Rules criteria.  

Kind regards,
Marcos
