I dunno. We *want* -devel-announce to be read be every DD, even the ones
which are almost-MIA, in the hope that they'd react to urgent stuff. If
there'll be a lot more of infrastructural messages (which I fully
approve of per se) on -devel-announce, some of them might feel annoyed
by them (if they're almost-MIA, they're probably not interested whether
the BTS moves from master to spohr or whatever) and unsubscribe from
-devel-announce. Thus I'd rather see an -infrastructure list (but that
is partly due to the fact that I'm not subscribed to -devel right now).

More general infrastructural messages with permanent or critical impact
should still be CC'd to -devel-announce, regardless of -infrastructure,
