I tried sending one release announcement to kde-cvs-announce.
Where it waited in moderation and never saw the light of day.

We could ask the sysadmins to whitelist a few of the release team members.
I think I asked about whitelisting my email  address many months ago, but I don't recall
why that never happened.

If the sysadmins would give us some ftp space, we could probably setup
a remote calendar there.  And I think (hope) KOrganizer still works with ftp calendars.
I asked for ftp space on the KDE servers a few days ago but haven't heard back.
