The main thing I get from them is that they're being recorded to a
(theoretically) immutable archive indexed by a lot of other systems.
Some day I'd love for them to include checksums of the release
artifacts and be OpenPGP-signed by a release delegate for whatever
project is releasing, and for those people to also try to get their
keys signed by one another and members of the community at large.

Sure, we could divert them to a different list (openstack-announce
was suggested in another reply), but I suspect that most people
subscribed to -dev are also subscribed to -announce and so it
wouldn't effectively decrease their E-mail volume. On the other
hand, a lot more people should be subscribed to -announce so that's
probably a good idea anyway?
