Well, I found that sending a separate e-mail to announce@a.o was
useful for two reasons:
- more likely to get bounces; wanted to distinguish those from TLP list bounces
- people sometime reply all
- announce@a.o requires an ASF address; I use GMail for TLP subscriptions

So there was usually a short lag between the TLP announce and the ASF announce.

As mentioned above, ASF announce is stricter about the mail sender,
which might put some off.

There are definitely release announcements that are not copied to the
announce@a.o list already (e.g. Maven plugins aren't usually announced

I'm concerned that having local announce lists will cause a drop in
valid traffic on the ASF announce list.
