Yes, that's right, in particular the SOP page for retrospective is [1]
and I would have done the retrospective, but really was busy so I miss
the date, but thank you for heading this up. 
As the F23 mktg tasks shows [2], it was due in November. I'm going to
open a mktg ticket for regain the time lost, and work on it soon (in
fact we have a bit of time before before a new F24 task happens).

Agreed, I had the same thought. Honestly I'd like to clarify some
questions inside the mktg just like how many of us are working on
magazine and how many on tasks?
I'd like shooting mails to mktg people joined the FAS group asking for
a better engagement along the tasks time. It is not possible the "usual
suspects" are the only members working on.

We have a mktg page [3] reporting the main links to the  pages, it
renews automatically every cycle, so the new pages should be opened
following those red links.
Wiki is really messed up and mktg part probably more than others, and
we should try to get it tidy.
Thank you very much.
