[wp-hackers] Simplicity in 2.next

Actually, wp-hackers, as it is, already has way too many emails in a given 
day, too many threads at once...  I'd prefer the 'different mailing list' 
approach, maybe 'wp-hackers-announce' that is just 'push' announcements.  An 
announce list would be exclusively to detail either upcoming dates, major 
code changes (i.e., "All plugin authors: use new wp_blah facility"), etc.

+1 to that.

We could have a mailing list for plugin authors to subscribe to that
only posted preview release announcements. Or, we could put it on the
devblog with a big disclaimer: 'do not actually install, for plugin
authors only'.
