Off list, Burkhard Meier helped me figure out why I hadn't seen the 

It was sent as one email cross-posted to multiple groups. I am 
subscribed to 3 of those groups: python-announce, python-list, 
python-dev with this same email address. My mail filter rules would have 
seen the many To: address, and filtered /all/ copies I received to the 
python-list mailbox, because my filter rules looked for python-list 
before python-dev.  I've just changed that to give priority to 
python-dev before the others. (just one of the evil side-effects of 

But, as far as I can tell, I only received one message, and that went to 
the wrong folder first... the one where python-list should go.  In 
reviewing my filters, I was reminded that python-announce and python-dev 
go to the same folder, which I read regularly. The python-list folder I 
can't keep up with, I read it occasionally, and search it when I have 
questions -- using it as a locally stored resource of helpful tips, and 
that is where the announcement went, because of the order of my filter 
rules, and the cross-posted announcement.

So either Google (my email host) noticed that I got 3 of the same 
message, and suppressed two of them, or the python-dev mail server that 
hosts the mailing lists merged the expanded destinations with duplicate 
suppression. I'm inclined to think the former is more likely.
