I think there are enough announcements on the haskell list,
to warrant having a separate announce list.  It would make
filtering announcements to a separate folder much easier

I don't have a strong opinion on this either way, however I
agree with some of the earlier comments that it only really
makes sense to have two different lists if their agenda are
more clearly distinct.  (IMHO "cafe" is too vague.)
