we had a discussion on this at the sprint IIRC.  The contributing text is not explicit about it.  but if it isn't a real problem that's great - i don't know to be honest.

FYI on testing-in-python someone pushed for not having pytest dev micro releases announced and bruno/me agreed on only announcing minor/major releases.  

pytest-announce would be restricted and only used for pytest related announcements whereas testing-in-python is a discussion list and python-announce sees tons of announcements unrelated to pytest.
