I've been trying to send DLA-2063 (and now DLA-2060) announcement to

This is invariably due to issues regarding the GPG signature.

Ah, I am guessing that Thunderbird doesn't really work when a GPG
signature is sent as an attachment?

If it helps, I tend to BCC myself when making those announcements so
that I can confirm that I used the correct key and (inline) signature

Aha! Nice idea, I shall BCC myself, too.
Perhaps I shall look up the inline signature scheme, thanks! :)

Using enigmail with PGP/mime has problems with debian lists for some reason. So that's most likely the cause. Just use inline PGP signatures when sending mails
to -announce lists and you should be good.

Perhaps this doesn't seem to be working for me :/
Here's what I'm doing:
Running `gpg --clearsign DLA-2063-1` which generates DLA-2063-1.asc and
pasting its content and sending it via GMail.

Whilst I BCCed myself, I do get a "Good signature from Utkarsh Gupta
<utkarsh@debian.org>" on Thunderbird.

Am I missing something?

Maybe use a mail client like Mutt or Thunderbird providing native GPG support on top of your gmail account?
