[openstack-dev] [release] Release announcements convergence

Hi everyone,

Release announcements in OpenStack come in various forms and shapes. So
far we had:

- Integrated release "service" components being announced on
openstack-announce and openstack general lists.

- Other "service" components sometimes being announced on openstack-dev

- Oslo libraries being announced on openstack-dev

- Other libraries sometimes being announced on openstack-announce,
sometimes on openstack-dev, sometimes not at all

With the move out of the "integrated release" we'd like to streamline
release announcements and make them *all* converge to openstack-announce.

The release management team proposes to push all announcements
(services, libraries that they release, etc) to openstack-announce, with
reply-to: set to openstack-dev (in case the announce generates a thread,
it will happen on openstack-dev and not on the moderated "announce" list).

Teams with deliverables that are not released by the release management
team are encouraged to publish their release announcements on
openstack-announce (their email there will be moderated through as long
as it's a release of an "openstack" project).

In summary, if you're not yet subscribed to -announce and would like to
be the first to know when something is released in the OpenStack world,
now would be a good time to do so. openstack-announce is very low
traffic, you should expect less than 12 emails per week on average.
