It also solves "How to contact the Steering Council?" problem, similar to
the way that python-committers makes it easier to contact all the core
developers in a way we're likely to see.

On Victor's original question, the Discourse experiment has been successful
enough that I don't see a problem with the committers mailing list going
essentially "announce only". I agree with Barry that going further than
that would require a PEP, but Discourse is bad enough for announcements
that I don't see much reason to do that.
