I will be looking at a GM update later today - should i merge that
announcement in?

Agreed. What I do is that I have the DLA template in my secure-testing
SVN checkout after I sent it, and leave it there until I have verified
it shows up in the archives.

(Or that I received it, but my email client (notmuch) strangely makes
that quite difficult, as it deduplicates multiple messages with the same
message ID, so I can't really tell if I actually received my own
messages! That will fortunately be fixed in the 0.26 release though... )
