        Err, there are about a hundred distributions based on
 Debian. Do you think polluting d-d-a with announcements from these
 100 or so distributions is appropriate? (I can easily patch in
 Xandors and mepis announcements to d-d-a, really, and others should
 not be hard to pick up).

        The Debian development announcements mailing list is for
 *DEBIAN* development announcements -- everything else os off topic.

        Err, we distribute free software. How downstream users use
 free software is up to them. This is the freedoms we are striving
 for. I don't really want to hear announcements from gazillions of
 people about how they are planning to integrate software I work on
 into proprietary distributions of Linux.

        Then take such off topic stuff off the debian development
 announcements list.
