+1 to the tz-announce proposal.
It's common in most projects, and I find it as useful.

I agree with Dirkjan that they should go to both ml.

As for having a special keyword in the subject, it can be having just
the word "released".

It can be added, but I don't think they are as good as a replacement,
because these are pull methods, while a tz-announce is a push method.
You get notified when there's a new release, instead of needing to check
repeatedly when does a release happen.

Still, if they were to filter everything but announcements, it'd be
preferable to only deliver them (tz-announce).

This is good for rules creating packages of the last release, but
doesn't announce them.

It's fine, but a pull method.
