I think it would be good to have a seperate list for announces. Within
the other lists information about new releases or critical updates etc.
won't be so 'visible' as if posted on a own list. Maybe existing
subscriptions to mb-dev and mb-users might be merged together for the
new list? Opinions?
Information might as well be send to news_item at osgeo.org, but in this
case information redundancy is no problem.
