Well, this particular email would not have (IMO) been o.k. to send to
announce as it discussed three separate things:
1. The fact that Beta2 just came out
2. The CFP for #PgWest
3. A produce advertisement about our Audit and Tune
Basically, it was just a generalized, "Hey guys, guess what is going on
and OH! You might want to consider this service" vs "CMD Announces new
High Availability service" or some such thing.
CMD has sent -announce emails about specific services in the past (as
have others) and I believe that is perfectly reasonable but this email
doesn't seem to fit the bill.
