We the directly involved received the message more directly too.
I believe the reason for targeting -announce as well was the initial
part about a more general principle, preserved in my quoting above,
which IMO does relate to all Debian developers in general.
I read the resolution as circumstancial, and thought the preamble had
been written to respect tradition. If the decision is meant to be a
precedent and that explains the choice of -announce, it would be good to
phrase the principle concretely and have confirmation from the committee
that this was intended.
