What I understand from your mail (apart from the concerns you express about release management, which I have no authority to address or even comment...Zack did that already anyway), is that you consider this announcement not important enough for -devel-announce. I definitely agree that this wasn't a high importance annoucement, but more something related to the project's life...and fun. This is indeed not even developers' oriented, so another announce channel would have been more appropriate. However, debian-announce being underused, this "fun" annoucement would have looked weird there. So, well, I did like I did two years ago and sent the annoucement there. Sorry if that annoyed you, that was definitely not the intent.
