This situation is really irritating, but if it makes anyone feel
better, 1.14.0 did get announced on announce.a.o, in the form of a
Press Release:

https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/rcef2e9d90cff20a25e3519ed1283f2715251002a5ed8eabd0ef1d6f6%40%3Cannounce.apache.org%3E

Which, by the way, doesn't meet that list's high standard of KEYS file
naming, or whatever the nonsense excuse was for blocking our
announcement email.

I agree 100% that moderation is for blocking spam. Our announcement
email was a legitimate announcement from the legitimate release
manager of a legitimate ASF Top Level Project and as such is not spam.
It should not have been blocked.

Waiting to see if the announce moderator(s) respond to Brane's message.
