I strongly disagree.  Like any piece of software where there's a
-workers/-devel list that sometimes gets a lot of traffic, there should be a
-announce list so that end-users who don't care about development issues and
don't have time to wade through all that mail have an option to subscribe to
a low-traffic list that only contains issues they care about (e.g. 
notifications of new releases, security issue announcements, etc.).

nmh-announce may not have had any posts to it while at its current home, but
it certainly did when it was being hosted at mhost.com.  If we are currently
underutilizing it, we should fix that and post an announcement about the
1.2 release, instead of eliminating the list.
