How many potential business users read gnome-announce-list? How many care
about GNOME development releases? Do they read all the political release
announcements too? Are they Republicans or Democrats? Do they understand US
politics? Do they worry about the English monarchy having undue influence
over GNOME?

gnome-announce-list is moderated. The release coordinator is the editor who
writes and proof-reads the GNOME D&DP announcements. He is not "any johnny"
who thinks he can post anything he bloody-well wants.
