I'm -1 on such a list. If it existed, people could complain "why wasn't
this announced properly". So the "blame" would be on people who
failed to give proper notice, instead of on the people who did not
care enough to follow the entire discussion.

More specifically, I'm sure I would have forgotten to post about the
svn switchover to python-dev-announce, just as I failed to post to

This is all volunteer work.
