I think though that there might be a market for an intermediate-volume
list; or perhaps the restrictions on fedora-devel-announce are too
tight. The use-case I'm thinking of is "heads up" announcements that
someone is about to break compatibility of a given package. Currently
we do that on fedora-devel-list, and it's easy for someone to miss that
something is happening to a package they depend on. Somebody made a
suggestion a month or two back to move those announcements to
fedora-devel-announce (with any followup discussion on -devel). As far
as I've seen that's not been adopted, and the current guidelines for
-announce certainly don't seem to favor it.
In short, -announce currently seems intended only for announcements that
just about every Fedora developer had better pay attention to. What
should we do with announcements that affect only customers of particular
