Presumably with my suggestion of mailing -project, and mentionning this
in the developers news you might have reached even more people and
received more "pro" mails, and you wouldn't have received my "contra"

As I suggested already, announce your efforts on a widely read channel;
-project + -news, or -devel-announce if this is important.

Well you make it sound like it's a large number; these are relatively
devel, project, vote
some important ones for some aspects of the project:
security, release, newmaint, testing, qa, policy, legal[*]
and personal choices related to my interests:
I wouldn't be surprized if some hundreds of DDs are subscribed to >= 15
Debian lists. (I've been subscribed or am subscribed to ~80 alioth
lists BTW and expect it to be the same for a bunch of other DDs as well.)
