This has now been raised a few times, and I think its important to talk 
about : request for an centos-mirror-announce list, so mirror admins can 
only monitor that.

I think its important to not have an announce only list for the mirrors, 
and have a place like this list so issues important to the mirror admins 
can be discussed here. Things like how we might make changes to the 
mirror structures etc.

 From my side of things there are 2 types of noise on this list :

1- people requesting new mirror additions and changes to status for 
those mirrors.

2- people running non-public mirrors using this list for chatter.

Tru, Ralph and I were talking about (1) yesterday and we can perhaps 
reduce that process to a webform. I am not sure what can be done about 
(2). Do we even want to do anything about it ?

Or, is there enough interest in having a -announce only list ?
