That sounds perfect IMHO.  It could be used for general discussion about
porting, upcoming new ports, or any ports that don't quite merit having
their own mailing list yet.

I'd prefer not to have it, or have to sign up to it as a porter.  It'd
probably get more spam than useful mail.

I can't think of a reason to mail *all* ports that wouldn't be
appropriate for debian-devel-announce;  or if your mail only concerns a
few ports it should be convenient to cross-post to the relevant ports'
lists only.
