According to http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/lists.xml (and my impression
from the name) that list appears to be for developer-targeted announcements.
What I was thinking was something along the lines of some of the
post-install messages (not all of them, just the important ones that
might actually (appear to) break things - eg. glibc upgrade - "you can't
downgrade"; gcc upgrade - "follow the guide here; coreutils upgrade -
"some locations have changed - run 'hash -r' to clear the cache"; etc.)
and other user-targeted messages to be sent to a list.
