[Dune-devel] [Dune] Regarding the Mailinglists dune-bugs and dune-announce

In the last years, people always wrote an email to the mailing list of
similar or identical content when they published a news item. I do not
think that is that much work. I oppose the proposed way of highjacking CI
though - it introduces more moving parts and violates the CI principle of
independence of the running environment (the runner needs privileged access
to mail servers etc.) - for very small actual benefit.

Best,
Dominic
