I agree with Doug on this.
No need to add another layer of complexity to the already existing
lists. Just use them properly. Besides wouldn't it make sense to publish
the top three or five recent posts to announce@ to a reserved space on
the CMS rather than relying on consumers to subscribe to the list at
all. I know errata notices get announced I would think a heads up around
the board about big changes like removing portions of code completely
should be announced as well.
FreeBSD-CA-??? "Change Announcement?" for that are constructed much of
the same way the SA & EN are ?.
Just some thoughts,
