I have nothing against having debian-announce (or even debian-news) on
planet (but assume that would first need to have an RSS feed for
debian-announces available).  However, I would like to see d-d-a synced
on planet.

While it is true that much stuff send to d-d-a is also interesting for
non-DDs, often the stuff is also interesting for a broader audience and
press people.  As already explained I would rather see DDs thinking
about contacting the publicity / press team before posting these things
to d-d-a, to avoid journalists and other folks picking stuff from d-d-a,
instead of a proper announcement.

Best regards,
