Hang on, they could be acceptable somewhere else in the domain though
couldn't they, with a link/promotion with Wikinews?
I think that a lot of people looking to WN for news writing experience might
also appreciate PR experience and there are probably also people happy to be
involved in promoting Wikimedia as a contribution to the project?
I don't see at all why it shouldn't be a linked project to Wikinews, as long
as it is clearly shown as a press room rather than part of the news output.
Particularly when it comes to, say, translating press releases I think it
could be a good cross-Wikinews project?

Wikinews as Wikimedia (and all others projects)
press room is an idea
i shared with one member of the wikimédia french chapter in december.
He seemed interressed so i am asking to you if it's something to
think about or no ?
any comment about that ?
Well... To make it short, no. Just no, this is a pretty stupid idea,
which would break NPOV. We're already putting a template where there's
a report on one of the Wikimedia projects, and press releases on
Wikinews aren't acceptable.
