... and back to this thread after a few weeks :)
The conclusions I saw were:
* Audience for openstack-announce should be "users/non-dev"
* Service project releases announcements are good
* Client library release announcements good
* Security announcements are good
* Internal library (particularly oslo) release announcements don't fit
* Where do Internal library release announcements go? [-dev or new
-release list or batched inside the weekly newsletter]
* Do SDK releases fit on -announce?
