We already have a Apache wide announce list, which is used for release
announcements and probably can or is already used for the other things
you mentioned.

If I was the press/analyst folks or security/sysadmin folks, I'd
probably prefer to receive all these announcements over one list, then
having to figure out every announcement list for each apache project
in use in my infrastructure or that I'm interested in.

Having said that, in the case of podlings, we try to discourage even
the creation of a user list, and concentrate all the traffic in the
dev list to help build the community.
