Personaly I don't need another list to subscribe to but as long as it would
be included in the standard list, I guess it would allow people to avoid
some of the noise on paypiggies list, though it isn't that busy either.  No
objection, but to me whats the point, I would want content of both.

> I propose:
> * We create a moderated baypiggies-announce mailing list.  
> Job postings would not be welcome here.  In fact, it would be 
> used only for baypiggies meeting announcements and perhaps 
> announcements for other Python-related meetings.
> * The current baypiggies list could remain a place for Python 
> discussion, a *small* amount of Python job posts (still 
> requiring that the jobs be for Python and in the Bay Area), 
> meeting planning, etc.
> I'd also like to see mail from the baypiggies-announce 
> mailing list automatically forwarded to the baypiggies list 
> so that people only have to subscribe to one or the other; it 
> can be burdensome to have to subscribe to too many lists.
> Now, I have a reasonable fear that this discussion can 
> quickly grow out of hand, so please respond with simply:
> * A number from -1 (hate it) to +1 (love it) signifying your opinion.
> * An optional reason for your opinion.
> * An optional alternate idea.
> In IETF style, I'd like to make a decision based on rough 
> consensus among members who are familiar with one another 
> rather than a formal vote.
> Best Regards,
