Over the last year the volume of traffic in haskell-cafe has increased so much, that I am often not able to follow everything. Which means there are often hundreds of emails in my haskell-cafe folder marked as new. 

Having announcements separated or in haskell@ would be IMHO a real improvement.

If every announcement or periodic status update (as e.g. HWN) is cross posted then there is no need for having two separate mailinglist. And I'd assume there is no majority in favor of merging those two mailinglist.
