Subject Re: Announcements List

I have mixed feeling about that.

On the one side, I agree with Gary that it doesn't add any real value.
There is twitter,
and we use consistent tagged subjects for release email, so it's easy
to subscribe
to the user list and set up a filter.

That being said, I could understand that some people may find it
cleaner to have a
separate announce list and it is not something unheard of, so I'm ok
with that if enough
people thinks it's a good idea. But I think there is at least 2
questions that come along:
  - should it be moderated ?
  - should announces still be sent to the user list ?
