There probably isn't a "debian-testing-announce" because, AFAIK,
"testing" was never meant to be a widely-used release. The
announcement of the availability of WPA in d-i'll probably be done
when Wheezy's released, in the same way that there wasn't a "we're now
defaulting to grub2 in testing" announcement when Squeeze was
"testing"; I've just googled "grub2
site:lists.debian.org/debian-announce" and "grub2
site:lists.debian.org/debian-news"). It'd be nice to have a generic
"testing" announce-list but I suspect that the developers are busy
enough as it is.
