Hi everyone --

<peanutgallery>

We can always have a brief summary statement sent out on announce@apache.org that contains
the relevant bits but not the formality of the earlier-referenced format.

As long as the community (and media) are kept in the loop, that should suffice.

</peanutgallery>

Thoughts?

I'm fine with not announcing but there is a 4.4.1 announcement on our
site now. Should that stay?
