I am doing most of the PR these days, but particularly for the T-Shirt
contest we already have a volunteer. The PR there is not the prime

I consider PR to be /very/ sensitive, so I wouldn't really like to
give that to anyone else besides Max.

prefer him to do this if he doesn't mind.

very interested in doing this work, at least not alone.

These people, at least for some of the roles have to be trustworthy. I
do not want, for instance,  our forums to fall because of an oversight
or security breach.
