being subscribed to a list and reading a list are two different 
things ... some people (including me) are reading the lists via gmane ...

besides ... if it is made clear that announcements are sent to the laa-
list only, people, who are interested in announcements can subscribe 
there ...
no need to force people to read mails several times, or even read mails 
one is not interested in (if someone doesn't care about announcements)

imho, double/triple-posting should be considered as `bad style' and 
should be avoided ...

best, tim
