On the other hand, the Cc: to the announce list I sent (obviously at
the same time) didn't get past the greylisting for another six hours.
By the time I was able to approve or cancel the post, it certainly
wouldn't have been of much use to anyone, so I canceled it.

Perhaps gmail doesn't always play nice with greylisting.  Or something.

But yes, this month's announcement was certainly too late in going out
for various reasons, none of them especially good.
