For the benefit of those who missed today's xiphmeet a consensus
was reached on mime-types and extensions. So: at what point
does an announcement need to be sent out and where?
Silvia has said she hasn't much available time to work on a new
RFC, what can be done to help?
 Some important Xiph people weren't present though, is
this waiting their approval?
 As well as news sites the Wikipedia page might be due an
edit for instance, once the change is certain.
