[Python-Dev] on announcing point releases

(Just thinking out loud)

I wonder if it would help gain wider distribution for the point releases if
explicit announcements were sent to the various Linux distributors so they
could create updated packages (RPMs, debs, whatever) for their users.

On a related note, I see one RedHat email address on python-dev (and one
Debian address on python-list).  Are there other Linux distributions that
are heavy Python users (as opposed to simply packaging it up for inclusion)?
If so, perhaps they should be invited to join python-dev.
