That's to be expected, though, right? We have something like 130 TLPs. Even
if a TLP has a respectable amount of press/analysts/end-users subscribing
to the announcement list, we'd not expect that number to be more than the
overall foundation announcement list, which caters to a much bigger
audience.

I don't believe we should force an announce@ list on anybody. But I do
think it might be a good idea to mention a few of the standard lists that
projects might consider requesting.

user@, dev@, announce@, etc. commits@ is required. When you're community
grows, you may want to consider tickets@, and general@, etc. CloudStack had
marketing@ before we graduated, even.
