I agree with Jean-Luc.  Daily e-mail from the list rarely tops 20 (which
includes notices of new releases), I don't see a problem. 

I learned about MaemoClaws here and when the notice came out (just using
this as an example) I decided to give it a try.  I would not have checked
the garage project news for this before then. 

Perhaps the forecast for new sales is very high and you're preparing for an
onslaught of new users? :-)

Hi Quim, 

I do not agree. I think that a users mailing list is a good
location, with others, to announce new versions of applications.
All 200 projects will never announce in the same time. All people
doesn't survey maemo.org to find new releases.

But as you want, and even if I think that it's an error, the new
releases will not be any more announced on this list.
