I, as a Git person, asked the release team to send something over the
announcement list last week.

In the normal course of doing the conversion I've been emailing lists
relevant to what I'm working on to double-check my work. Today I'm
going to send out a big cross-post for projects in
kdebase-workspace/runtime (assuming sysadmins upload the repos). But I
think something more formal & broad-spectrum from the release team
would be nice.
