David, I do not want to give you the impression that I think you are
doing something wrong. Like I said, there is some value and general
interest in letting people know. The issue is that you are just one
of many people producing binaries and for the most part I do not think
anyone else is announcing each release on these lists. I would
personally not want to see everyone that makes binaries do this as I
think it would get very "spammy" whenever there is a new SVN release.
There was also this instance here where a user apparently thought you
were announcing the SVN release, and not just your binaries. So I
guess there is some possibility for confusion.

If you want to make an announcement over here, I would suggest using
the announce@ list only, but that is just one person's
suggestion/opinion. Personally, I think when the SVN project issue a
release announcement people just go to their preferred location to get
the binaries and do not wait or look for a separate announcement.
