Re: But Why? Re: [fab] Split Fedora-Announce-List

Have a question and a few comments.  Why do we need to do this?  Split up
the Fedora-Announce list?  I haven't heard complaints from the general user
community about there being announcements mixed in with package updates.
The idea may have merits, might it be a good idea to run this by our peers
in the Fedora community?

Ambassadors for example had complaints that general announcements being
mixed with package updates made it much harder for them to track
relevant information.

I do like the idea of separating the RPM announcements from more general fedora announcements, like stuff that the board wants to make public. Some sort of global announce list that people are on because they see the high signal/low noise value of it is very useful. Stops us from having to cross-post stuff to multiple lists if we want it to be seen.
