Re: debian-i18n-announce mailing list?

I recently had some private discussions with some subscribers of this
list, namely Matej Kovacic and Josip Rodin, about a possible -announce
list for i18n topics. They mentioned me that they actually missed some
announcements by me about outdated D-I translations because of the
(relatively) high traffic of debian-i18n.

Thus, the idea of an -announce ML popped up. What would youpeople
think about this?

I'm feeling a bit allergic to extra MLs right now: I've had to join 15 at OpenOffice.org [1] so far. :( Which makes 41 i18n mailing lists. Plus the dev/user/women in computing ones, etc. 64 MLs altogether.

Another solution would be to tag announcements:

[ANN] NMU for package_name

[ANN] Deadline for D-I Manual

so we could filter by topic.

That way we wouldn't have to worry about posting to the wrong list etc.

I'm a strong supporter of filter-by-topic in any case. It saves a lot of time with busy lists. :)

[1] This is not to blame Deb18n for my OOo experience. Simply to explain why I'm not too keen on extra MLs right now.
