Since we're in a string announcement period leading up to a release, I
was asked to post details of the changes to both gnome-i18n and

I'm not subscribed to those lists, and I don't need to be. If I *did*
subscribe, I'd almost never look in those folders anyway. Am I being
"extremely rude" when I do what I was asked to do, and post the
notification there?

I expect that if anyone has any questions or feedback to my post,
they'll be sensible enough to keep me in Cc when they reply.

And what if they don't -- if they reply only to the *one* list through
which they happened to receive the copy of the message that they hit
reply on?  Well, in that case they're not just dropping *me* from the
thread; they're also dropping the other mailing list too, and needlessly
balkanising the discussion.
