You know that you can set filters for the announce list, so that you
only get to see announcements for the archs you are interested in? 

<http://lists.centos.org/mailman/options/centos-announce> - you have to
login with your mail address and the password you chose for that list
(or the one you have been given by the list).

No need to filter on your side >:)

Cheers,

Ralph
