No, that's harking back to the ridiculous situation that existed prior
to Guy implementing the dinstall-originated announce messages.  If
these mailing lists are to be used at all[1], the announces should be
sent by dinstall.  Why on earth someone bothered to setup these lists
up, not really tell anyone and only fix _one_ out of the 15+ buildds
to use them is beyond me.


[1] Which is not exactly obvious to me, I seriously doubt there's
    going to ever be enough subscribers to these lists to justify the
    effort it's going to take to put them in place and maintain them;
    but whatever.
