Maybe we can use the chance and discuss the announcements' content and
format, for sake of readability.
fedora-package-announce at fedora.us has been a bit confusing with its
free-form subject lines, message bodies, and various forms of GPG
Usage: fedora-pkgannfmt <rpm-file or name of an installed package>
in fedora-rpmdevtools, which prints a few RPM package headers and the
package changelog. Easy for preparing announcements. But it doesn't
know where to cut off the changelog and which target distributions the
package has been released for (fc1? FC1? rh9? RHL9?).
So, what and how do we announce? For reference, the _old_ list
archives are here: http://www.fedora.us/pipermail/fedora-package-announce/
