This was discussed between Warren, Jeremy Katz, and myself.  The solution to 
the problem is to not create yet another mailing list, its to enforce the 
list for the purpose it was meant for.  Announcements most often spawn 
discussions (see my announcement re dist-hg), having it span two lists or 
dealing with a readonly -> read/write list is bothersome and confusing.  
(yes, I know we have fedora-package-announce and fedora-announce set up that 
way, but those usually have less conversations attached to them).  All 
maintainers should be on fedora-maintainers, so one should be able to 
announce stuff AND discuss it there.
